Alewijnse Marine Systems, has announced the appointment of Jacco van der Stelt as its new commercial manager for Lantic Entertainment Systems. Based at the company’s premises in Nijmegen, the Netherlands, Van der Stelt will be responsible for representing the Lantic brand to Alewijnse customers in the luxury yachting sector.
Jacco van der Stelt will manage contact with existing and potential customers of Alewijnse including naval architects, owners’ representatives and shipyards in the superyacht segment, with the objective of promoting Lantic’s integrated entertainment solutions as part of the overall Alewijnse portfolio of products and services.
Lantic offers two systems; the Pro system is a dedicated audio-visual entertainment solution capable of serving up to seven individual onboard zones, while the Premium system offers additional capabilities including ship’s information and full cabin control at the same time as serving over one hundred zones.
Both are integrated, multi-zone entertainment systems that use centralised onboard servers to store movies and music and act as hubs for satellite, internet and other audiovisual services, all of which can then be selected and accessed from multiple independent locations around the yacht.
Jacco spent 14 years with NXP Semiconductors, where he was involved in the sale of sophisticated components for high end professional and personal entertainment solutions. In this role he worked with leading global brands including Sony, Samsung and Philips. Besides a detailed knowledge of entertainment systems, Van der Stelt is also an expert on the latest developments in digital mass-market products. Although the yachting sector is new to him, he is eager to be part of this exciting and challenging world.
“I welcome the challenge of becoming commercial manager for Lantic Entertainment Systems here at Alewijnse Marine Systems,” says Jacco, “and I look forward to learning more about yachts and the particular issues that surround onboard entertainment systems. I also look forward to applying my previous experience in the wider industry to bring this exciting and innovative brand to an ever-widening customer base.”
