Sophisticated but simple to use and robust, our leading products and systems are scalable so you can add more over time. You can integrate them with your smart home so you can check what’s happening back on shore and they can also be seamlessly integrated with the boat control systems for your convenience.

Using the appropriate feature-rich controller based system you can add increased functionality over time, it also enhances safety and comfort by providing more efficient energy management onboard. Example features include:

  • Remotely controlling lights and heating or air conditioning to turn on shortly before arrival, ensuring everything on the vessel is set to preference yet reducing energy consumption
  • Adjusting the thermostat to ensure appropriate interior cabin temperatures
  • Providing GPS and navigation data through the television or touch screens so owners and onboard guests know the current location of the vessel and anticipated arrival
  • Triggering lights to automatically turn on, off or dim, based on detected light levels or specific times of the day
  • Opening and closing blinds, according to when the sun sets or the skies become cloudy to allow for optimum levels of natural light
  • Centralised audio and video collections from multiple sources and allowing selection of music or movies by cover art from a single library from any room on the vessel

Whether the project is a new build or a refit, we will  install seamlessly to deliver a bespoke solution across the spectrum of audio visual and cinema systems, control systems, lighting and cabling.

Control Systems

Amid a great deal of technology everywhere onboard, we know that the ability to have stress-free control over the ambience of the entire yacht’s living space is a must. That’s why one central control with a user friendly interface is at the heart of everything we create. We are specialists in the installation of intuitive systems to control every aspect of the entertainment experience, and more, at the touch of a button.

Our systems can be programmed to control almost every electronic device on board including lighting, blinds and curtains, heating, security systems, audio and video settings, and any on-demand library selection and management. No matter how big or small a system, our approach is highly personalised, responding to the client’s exact brief and working to ensure that the system is flexible enough to keep pace with their requirements.

Lighting is an essential part of the design for the look and feel of a yacht, and our systems ensure simple control over external and internal lighting, using the same intuitive interfaces that form the base of all our packages.

The choice of lighting system used is dependent on the circuits required on board, and we work with a range of lighting manufacturers and designers that give our clients a choice to suit their requirements.

Our team is able to assist with the design and integration of a simple and stylish lighting system that works harmoniously with the overall wiring and control system.

At the foundation of any AV network is the structured cabling. It connects all AV servers, control systems, lighting and other devices together, allowing multimedia traffic to be routed quickly around the yacht. A crucial aspect of the network infrastructure is the use of the correct cabling and its installation to ensure the networks run at their full potential.
