About us

Who are we?

Digital Yacht is all about next generation navigation, communication and entertainment systems for your boat. Boating should be fun, safe and easy and our products integrate into existing and new boat networks to bring a powerful dimension to your on-board electronics.

We firmly believe that low cost consumer devices such as iPhones and tablets, PCs and MACs have a place on board and can help make legacy systems compete with the latest in dedicated marine electronic products at a fraction of the cost. We make internet access whilst afloat easy and affordable as well as bringing all your navigation data to your favourite consumer devices – not just for you but for crew and guests too.

Our navigation systems cover advanced GPS and compass technology as well as the most comprehensive range of AIS products in the marketplace. Plus our PC and software solutions bring simple yet powerful solutions to a variety of on board requirements from communication to navigation, entertainment to monitoring.

Our design team has 100’s years combined experience in marine electronic systems and we take pride in our quality heritage with manufacturing in the UK and global reach with offices in the US and China. Last year our products were sold in over 100 countries worldwide.
