According to Jay Keenan, President of GOST,
“Our products have been developed by yacht owners who saw the need for an established security and monitoring system on their yachts from personal experience. GOST, developed our products to fill this void and the enthusiasm from both owners and dealers has been overwhelming.”
GOST first introduced the Marine Magellan to the marine marketplace in 2005, it was the first two-way voice, completely wireless security and monitoring system to utilize proven technology applied specifically to marine applications.Marine Magellan has 32 zone monitoring and the ability to remotely monitor such things as high water, low battery voltage and loss of shore power, all with voice reporting. It can also control several AC and DC vessel functions remotely through cellular or satellite communication.
In 2006, the Nav-Tracker GPS monitoring system was added to our product line, which tracks vessels and notifies owners if the vessel has breached the coordinates of a pre-determined safety zone (geofence). It can also determine the exact coordinates of a vessel at any given moment.
