Siren Marine yacht monitoring – fitted on a Princess F45 by Gary Nicholls
This loyal Princess customer needed complete peace of mind that their boat was safe whilst they were overseas. Princess engineer, Gary, fitted a Siren 3 Pro device which is the next generation in yacht monitoring. It goes beyond traditional GPS, giving owners the ultimate smart boating experience, keeping you connected 24/7 via an easy-to-use App with global cellular and optional satellite connectivity, meaning the owner can stay connected to their boat anytime, anywhere.
Princess Motor Yacht Sales Engineer Gary said, ‘With a simple glance at the App, the owner can see all sorts of useful data such as whether the bilges are okay, how much fuel is on board, the battery status, shore power, check engines are off and most importantly – exactly where the boat is.’
Princess F45 owner, John Dunn, said ‘‘Our Siren Marine system has been brilliant in alerting us to; the shore power going down, the engine connectivity, someone entering the boat and you can check the cameras when people are working on board. All things that make you confident in the security of your valuable asset. And the team are great at getting the job done well and a delight to have onboard.’
Humphree stabilisation system – fitted on a Princess S66 by Mark Brown
A new customer requested a comprehensive package of bespoke customisation for their Princess S66 across the entire retrofit offering at Princess Motor Yacht Sales, Plymouth. One key objective was that the owner was keen to incorporate some additional stabilisation whilst under way. Their S66 was already fitted with a Gyro Seakeeper but they requested enhanced comfort for their guests. The Humphree stabilisation system improves sea-keeping performance and enables the yacht to get onto the plane more quickly thanks to its award-winning interceptor design.
Princess Motor Yacht Sales Retrofit Production Supervisor, Mark, said ‘It’s a complex install due to the customisation of new helm panels to fit the bespoke control panel and additional work to prepare the transom to accommodate the Humphree interceptor unit.’
Princess S66 owner, Danny Zigal, said ‘‘The Humphree Interceptors have provided a new level of stability. We tested the boat in a 2m swell in Plymouth and there was barely any roll when the stabilisation systems were active. Definitely a must-have on any boat. The friendly and knowledgeable Princess Motor Yacht Sales engineering team in Plymouth have been fantastic to work with.’
