It’s always exciting to see what new boating innovations hit the market. Here are our favorite top-rated products that you might like for your yacht this coming season:
Snap Tool Multi-Key: If you like handy little gadgets, youÃ¢â¬â¢ll love this compact multi-tool by David Instruments, which seems to anticipate just about every fix-it need you might encounter on board your yacht. This multi-key boasts hex wrenches (8 mm – ÃÂ½ inch), two screwdriver heads (Phillips and slotted), a cutting blade (safely concave), bottle opener, zipper pull, and shackle tool. There are also deck plate keys compatible with most on the market.
The Webboat 4G PLUS: Glomex makes staying connected easy (and reliable). Their handy Webboat 4G PLUS boasts dual SIM technology, with two high-performance antennas to keep you connected to Wi-Fi or cellular networks up to 20 miles out from shore. Our yacht specialists particularly appreciate that you only need to have a 12/24vDC power source to install this dome on your yacht, plus you can download either an Android or iOS app to operate the Webboat 4G PLUS.
Argos Nautic 330 Jet: This well-appointed Rigid-Inflatable Boat (RIB) is designed to transport passengers to and from 50- to 70-foot yachts with ease and luxury. The Argos Nautic 330 Jet seats five comfortably, plus it has built-in storage for luggage, coolers, and other necessities. Additional features include a swim platform and a retractable stainless steel ladder.
ACR Adventure Kit: Safety first is compact and stylish thanks to West Marine. The grab ‘n go RapidDitch dry bag is packed with the essentials you’d want in the event of an emergency on land or water (and it weighs less than two pounds). Each adventure kit includes a ResQLink+ Personal Locator Beacon, a C-Strobe Rescue Light, a Hot Shot Signal Mirror, and a ResQ Whistle. We think this is a must for any excursions off your yacht.
These are useful gadgets for your yacht, but don’t overlook adequate yacht insurance coverage. Call the marine insurance specialists at Global Marine Insurance for a complimentary review of your current policy.
