Marine Security, Surveillance and Tracking Systems Installed Onboard 65-foot HCB Center Console YachtsTM Estrella
Fort Lauderdale, Fla. – GOST® (Global Ocean Security Technologies), a world leader in marine security, tracking, monitoring and video surveillance systems, announced today that its Apparition GOST Watch HD XVR and Nav-Tracker are providing security, surveillance and tracking capabilities on the newly launched HCB Center Console YachtsTM flagship Estrella. The Apparition XVR was recently awarded the 2018 Product of Excellence in the category of Vessel Monitoring Systems at the National Marine Electronics Association (NMEA) Conference and Expo in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.
The 65-foot Estrella is now the world’s largest center console yacht. The Estrella made its public debut at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in October 2018. HCB Center Console Yachts creates custom, offshore center console yachts for the discerning custom buyer, with models ranging from 39 to 65 feet.
“The Estrella is a beautiful and unique yacht and we are proud to secure it with our proven systems,” said Jay Keenan, president and CEO, GOST. “When purchasing such a distinctive vessel, it is vital to take into account how to protect that investment. The owners selected our top-of-the-line Apparition and Nav-Tracker systems for their security and tracking capabilities. We are honored to be included in this project and have total confidence that the owners will be more than satisfied with their GOST products.”
“The team at HCB and our customers greatly enjoy the situational awareness given by GOST systems,” said Elias De La Torre III, president and CEO, HCB Center Console Yachts. “There is peace of mind knowing that the yacht is protected by eyes on board and the activity alerts coupled with 24/7 video give further assurance.”
A cutting-edge touchscreen marine security monitoring and tracking system, the Apparition elevates GOST‘s award-winning product line to the next level. Designed with large yachts in mind, it is the most customizable and powerful GOST security system ever released, controlled via interactive touchscreen keypads installed throughout a vessel. With GOST’s wide array of sensors such as high-water, low-voltage, smoke and heat detectors, as well as a full suite of intrusion detection sensors, the system is truly customizable to meet every vessel’s layout and every customer’s priority.
To keep track of the location of the vessel at all times, the owners selected the GOST Nav-Tracker. The unit is a global Inmarsat satellite-based tracking device that offers reliable, remote vessel tracking and management from anywhere in the world. Designed specifically for tracking a stolen vessel, the Nav-Tracker also allows family and friends to provide support if the boat is in peril or notify maritime authorities if there is a deviation from the float plan.
The surveillance system records video files on the GOST Watch HD XVR system at the highest resolution produced. Connected directly, the GOST Watch HD XVR collects video without using the bandwidth from onboard cellular or satellite-based Internet connections. It is capable of saving up to 3 months of the highest resolution footage with its four-terabyte hard drive. Footage can be accessed locally on board the boat for viewing and downloading to a computer or USB thumb drive, or remotely via the GOST Watch HD XVR app or website.
