If you are looking for an extraordinary experience, there is nothing quite like staying on board a superyacht. Arrive at the vessel and feel instantly at home, with the crew welcoming you, offering you a drink, taking care of your luggage and guiding you through the yacht to your new accommodation.
Curious to discover more about your new home and the journey ahead, you might refer to the printed guide often found in the guest cabins, or pick the crew’s brains for information about the upcoming trip, the various locations you will be visiting, the planned activities, weather conditions and so on. Of course, as safety measures are key to every superyacht trip, the crew will also offer you a safety briefing prior to the beginning of your trip.Photo: Charl van Rooy / SuperYacht Times
But what if you could get all of the information you need for your trip, and so much more, instantly and at the push of a button? This is where YachtEye comes in. Thanks to its combination of intuitive, innovative features and game-changing user-accessibility, the YachtEye system enriches the onboard experience of the guests, provides vital safety information and saves crew valuable time on a busy trip.
