YACHT DEFINED IS THE RESULT FROM CHALLENGING AND QUESTIONING THE TRADITIONAL BOAT SYSTEMS OF TODAY
Fully connected boat
A fully connected boat is a boat where all systems are interconnected and takes advantage of the combined knowledge of all the systems. For example the system knows if the engine is turned on and automatically increases the sound volume on the stereo or the system knows that you have started the engine and enables the bow thruster controls.
A typical tender boat or day cruiser would have the large navigation screen which shows relevant information about navigation and the performance of the boat. The navigational screen is controlled by a joystick and the steering wheel buttons. You use your phone or tablet to handle the detailed things like adding destination and routes.
On a 30-40ft boat there are a lot more systems connected compared to the smaller boat. Apart from the big navigation screen you also have the choice to add a secondary command screen which is a smaller (~10”) Android touch display. On a typical 30-40’ boat you can also control the heating, cooling, lights and other things which are connected to living on the boat. The power management is a part of the system and the system manages your power consumption.
On larger boats the system gets even more connected. There might be a need for a second navigation screen in the pilot house and one on the flybridge. All these system will then share the information about routes and charts automatically. You may control anchors, hatches, thrusters and many other things from the pilot house, a phone or even a smart watch. The entrance doors are connected so that you do not need keys to operate the door.

Yacht Defined is the central hub of the boat. Yacht Defined decides what will happen when you turn the engine on and what will happen when you approach the boat. Yacht Defined also gives the user and intuitive user interface for both driving, living and owning a boat.
Smart contextual design
In the pursuit for an ultimate driving experience, Yacht Defined system provides the most relevant information for any use scenarios, by decluttering and emphasizing the most important data with its intuitive, clean and user-friendly interface.
If the boat can accessed remotely such functionality as getting an alarm when the bilge is getting water or when the boat is rocking extensively. It also gives you the possibility to start the heating or cooling in the boat before you have arrived and also helps you to have a cool drink in the fridge on arrival. Remote functionality is also an enabler for services such as a boat owner giving access to a service technician to open a door in the boat without the owner being there.
In many of the boats today the boat is not only a vehicle - It is also a living room. Both when driving a boat and when using it as a living room listening to your favorite music and such things should be easy. Yacht Defined enables you to listen to your Spotify music or FM radio from its own interface.
Over the air updates is an important feature when doing a modern connected system. New features comes and new trends and behaviours emerge. Yacht Defined can live and change with these changes and as an owner you can always have a fresh look and feel of your boat.
