Raymarine wins DAME award

Nov 22, 2022

Raymarine’s YachtSense Link marine router has won the 2022 DAME award in the category ‘Marine electronics and marine related software’. The story was carried in the UK media outlet Marine Industry News. They reported that the innovative device is a multipurpose marine mobile router equipped with Raynet Ethernet ports, mobile broadband connectivity, and onboard WiFi. Announced at METSTRADE, the award was judged by a mix of experts seeking to recognise outstanding products, assessed on overall design, build quality, functionality and use of materials.

“We are thrilled to be announced as a winner at the 2022 DAME awards,” says Gregoire Outters, general manager at Raymarine. “We are constantly aiming to deliver high-performance systems that make boating more stress-free, in which onboard connectivity is crucial. We are delighted to be recognised for YachtSense Link, an integral part of the new YachtSense Ecosystem which enables complete onboard and offboard integration for a smart home on the water.”

YachtSense Link allows crew and family to connect Axiom displays, phones, tablets, and PCs to a unified onboard network. It automatically switches between marina WiFi and mobile networks to ensure consumers are always connected. Users are also able to combine YachtSense Link with the Raymarine mobile app for remote access to the Raymarine network, with added security of remote GeoFence vessel monitoring. YachtSense Link also features low-voltage digital switching / monitoring channels for controlling and monitoring onboard electrical devices like pumps, batteries, lighting, and more.

This award comes just weeks after Raymarine signed a MoU with Avikus HD  to cooperate on the integration of the world’s first autonomous leisure boat solution, the Avikus NeuBoat, into Raymarine’s navigational products.
