Case Studies

As a company, we aim to supply you with the equipment that best suits your requirements and budget. This often involves some fairly lengthy discussions, both over the phone and via email, whilst we help you to understand the difference between the various internet technologies first and then move on to the options within the satellite market.

Understanding the initial capital costs is just one part of the puzzle but what about on-going running costs (airtime)? How easy is it to turn the airtime on and off when you are not sailing? How easy it is to use the equipment once installed? What are the challenges of using the equipment whilst on passage or at anchor?

Well, we are always keen to improve our offerings to our customers and having thought about this, we decided that we needed to supplement our advice with some real world examples from the sailing community.

We are thrilled to introduce you to a variety of customers below, all with different levels of equipment and sailing dreams. Why not sit down with a cup of tea and take a dive into their worlds?

We would like to say a huge thank you to our contributors to date. If you would like to add to feature in our case study library, please get in touch using the details at the bottom of the page.
