Imagine you are on board your superyacht, cruising through the Arctic Ocean when suddenly you realise you forgot to check the weather conditions and itinerary for your upcoming destination, Norway. Rather than having to ask a crew member or management firm to look it up for you, you are easily able to look up this vital information yourself, from the comfort of your own seat, thanks to YachtEye, the unique visual entertainment solution for owners and guests onboard of superyachts.

The system intuitively shares valuable insights concerning the journey, the stay on board and the surroundings with all users. Consisting of different modules, Oculus Technologies aims to bring together astute information and insights relevant to superyacht owners and guests in a visually impressive and fun way on board as well as onshore through YachtEye. The system is a powerful real-time tool which keeps guests up to date with their itinerary, menus, places of interest and vessel movements.

The system, which is accessible through any tv via a dedicated channel or tablet, is easy and simple to use, as well as visually pleasing ensuring user efficiency throughout their entire superyacht journey.

The updated version includes an improvement on current features, as well as new features and modules. For example, Highlights offers owners, guests and crew members direct access to insightful information on what they can do once they step foot on shore. Explore offers them more in-depth information about what is going on inside the yacht and includes stunning 3D visuals of the engine room and the integration of 360 views of the interior. Safety provides the owners and guests to explore the safety plan and video, anywhere anytime.Photo: Oculus TechnologiesIn addition to the launch of YachtEye 4.0, Oculus Technologies is hard at work on new and innovative solutions to further enhance the onboard experience of owners, guests and crew. Oculus Technologies recently partnered with Crestron Electronics for the integration of YachtEye within Crestron’s new line of remotes, the HR-310 and the TSR-310 making the system more accessible. YachtEye is able to integrate flawlessly with Creston’s products, offering users a new way of interfacing with the system through the remote control.
