Marlink launches Telemar Yachting


Marlink (an ICT solutions specialist) is integrating its Telemar US, UK and Italy leisure market operations to create Telemar Yachting. The aim is to provide a portfolio of the firm’s managed services to the yachting market.

Telemar will provide an integrated offering of marine bridge electronics, onboard and maintenance services, as well as satellite communications through Marlink.

Marlink says Telemar Yachting has been created in response to increasing demand from yacht owners and managers for a more holistic ‘single service’ approach, negating the need to work with multiple suppliers to manage a service that works across hardware, connectivity, safety and navigational systems.

Telemar Yachting will also integrate ‘OmniAccess‘ digital connectivity solutions with Telemar bridge electronics to provide remote access to bridge systems.

Marlink says this new organisation will leverage the experience gained by Marlink Group, providing connectivity on thousands of merchant vessels and Telemar providing service maintenance contracts and remote digital support for navigation and other equipment around the world.

“Telemar Yachting is a first-of-its-kind, total solution with an approach that will bring managed services across navigation, connectivity and safety into focus for yacht owners and managers,” says Mike Bauwens, CEO of Telemar Group. “Providing an integrated service on equipment and applications for the first time gives our clients total piece of mind on operational performance, safety and compliance.”

“There is increasingly strong demand from the yachting sector for a complete managed service that spans equipment installation, maintenance and digital connectivity,” adds David Walker, managing director of Telemar Yachting. “Owners should not have to call different vendors for these closely related services or act as the project manager when something goes wrong; Telemar Yachting is here to simplify the process and let them focus on sailing.”
