Alewijnse of the Netherlands announced today that it has purchased Danish firm Lantic Systems A/S, the leading supplier of bespoke integrated entertainment systems for superyachts.
Lantic Entertainment Systems will re‐start as a distinct business entity from its base in Risskov, Denmark, but will benefit from the substantial international distribution capabilities of its new parent company and business partner, as well as access to greater resources for its research and development programme. Alewijnse Marine Systems and Marine AV will jointly drive one of the most prestigious names in marine entertainment systems, and have a flagship brand to spearhead their expansion within this exciting and fast‐moving sector.
Alewijnse Marine Systems provides technical services, innovative electrical engineering and ICT solutions to owners and builders in the superyacht, commercial and naval sectors and has worked with many top yards including Amels and Oceanco. Marine AV is already the leading supplier of high quality marine audio and visual products in Europe to boat builders and retailers and has over fifteen years experience in the sector.
Lantic Entertainment Systems will re‐establish itself to deliver integrated entertainment solutions to the world’s finest yachts. Current development programmes include improvements in iPod compatibility and integration, enhanced delivery of HD programming, and improved solutions for real‐time data streaming. The iconic Lantic remote control keypad is widely recognised as a benchmark of technological capability and sophistication.
“This agreement creates a partnership that combines the very best in technology and distribution,” commented David Milner, Managing Director of Marine AV, and Dick Alewijnse, CEO of Alewijnse. “Up until now Lantic has been a well‐kept secret among the most selective of owners, but together we can make Lantic the leading entertainment brand in the luxury yacht market, with its products a recognised hallmark of excellence on board any yacht.”
