Dutch technology company YachtCloud launches YIS, an innovative information system for yachts
YIS (Yacht Information System) is a digital platform designed exclusively for guests and superyacht owners. Equipped with a flexible and dynamic interface, available anytime and anywhere, YIS presents all the information that customers and owners want to know: from the course to the characteristics and design of the boat.
YachtCloud’s Sales Director, Roel van der Zwet, comments on the unique features of the system: “YIS is not only a fantastic tool for yacht owners and guests, but it is also very versatile and can be used on almost all existing systems on board. YIS is also easy to integrate with nautical standards such as NMEA. It is something that really benefits implementation and sets us apart. Features like this show that YIS is a product designed with the true yachting experience in mind, with excellent cost efficiency, easy deployment and seven-star service inside.”
An intelligent software solution that requires no bandwidth, YIS offers easy access to a wide range of customizable features for greater interaction, understanding and immersion on board. YIS is available as an app for tablets and smartphones and as a TV channel, where all on-board data can be found in a single digital portal.
The system offers a schematic overview of the yacht layout, the ability to explore the yacht’s technical systems in interactive and intuitive 3D detail, easy access to deck data including speed, heading, time, depth, barometer, wind and temperature, behind-the-scenes views of the boat’s mechanics, map view to plot the yacht’s course.
