Yacht Sentinel & Fountaine Pajot announce ground-breaking partnership to equip boats with connected boat technologies


Sentinel Domotics ®, an innovative big data solution enabling the transmission of any data available on the NMEA network, will be soon installed on new boats manufactured by Fountaine Pajot.

London – Yacht Sentinel Ltd, a European company specialised in connected boat technologies since 2008, is pleased to announce that it will equip all new boats built by leading catamaran manufacturer Fountaine Pajot from February 2021 onwards.

Sentinel Domotics is a revolutionary solution enabling Fountaine Pajot and its customers to remotely receive any data available on the NMEA network including engine & battery parameters, fluid levels, temperature, humidity & wind data, water depth, speed, GPS coordinates and much more.

A smart switch is also available to turn on the NMEA system remotely for a short period when the NMEA system is switched off.

“We are delighted to partner with Fountaine Pajot and support the company’s transition into the new digital area of connected technologies. Over the last 12 years we have built an entire boating ecosystem with boat owners and shipyards at the centre of our developments. This new milestone is a testament to our vision to be at the heart of the connected boat revolution. Sentinel Domotics creates outstanding value not only for Fountaine Pajot but also for its customers and dealers” Romain Devismes, CEO of Yacht Sentinel, commented. “This partnership is yet another demonstration that the boat industry is keeping up with connected technologies seen in the smart home and automotive industries.”

Information is displayed on a user-friendly Fountaine Pajot app to give a better experience on the water and added peace of mind. Together with our Partner Platform, our ecosystem sets a new standard for the connected boat sector.

“We are pleased to work with Yacht Sentinel to provide our clients and dealers with this innovative technology solution. Not only can we now offer a customised app with all NMEA data to our customers, but the “Partner Platform” allows us to improve customer support, reduce maintenance costs and better understand the usage of our boats, all critical aspects to continuously manufacture market-leading boats” explained Romain Motteau, Fountaine Pajot Deputy Chief Executive Officer.
