FORT LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA (USA) – GOST (Global Ocean Security Technologies – formerly Paradox Marine) Marine Magellan and Nav-Tracker GPS security, monitoring and tracking systems are installed aboard the new Spencer 70 Penta Gone, powered by Volvo Penta’s Inboard Performance System (IPS 3600 Triple). The innovative Volvo Penta corporate flagship was commissioned to showcase the abilities and efficiencies of IPS 3600 Triple power.
Marine Magellan includes all the components necessary to help protect a boat and keep an eye on exactly what is happening onboard at all times. The Marine Magellan notifies a boat owner or captain with a phone call if there’s high water in the bilge, low battery voltage, loss of shore power, smoke, or intrusion.
When a Nav-Tracker transmitter is mounted discreetly on a boat and armed, a wireless ‘geo-fence’ with a 500-meter radius is created. If a boat is moved outside of this fence, Nav-Tracker uses Inmarsat based GPS satellite technology to monitor a boat’s location and notify up to ten people by email and/or text message every 15 minutes with the latitude/longitude, speed and heading. The systems’ optional sensors include door contacts, infrared beam sensors, deck pressure sensors and high water sensors. There is also an optional 130 decibel siren that can be added for extra protection and helps get thieves off the boat before the vessels is ever stolen.
“GOST has been very successful in recovering stolen vessels, however a vessel never stolen is always in better condition then one once recovered,” said Brian Kane, Director of Research & Development for GOST. “That is one of the significant differences with our systems. We are not just a tracking systems supplier, we offer a total package of security, monitoring, tracking and surveillance which provides much more complete protection for your vessel,” he added.
