Welcome to Boat Track

After an enjoyable cruse most captains feel a little sad coming back in to Harbour, but how about being able to come home and replay where you have been? Or what about having people see exactly where you are, if you get in to difficulty? Or what about not having to worrying if your boat is still on the mooring and.... what about being able to do all three for less than 30p a day?

Boat Tracking UK and Med

About Us

We are a small 'Solent' based marine and boat tracking company specialising in vessel location and tracking for ships of all sizes. Our special area of expertise is with Boat location, Boat Tracking and Location Playback hardware, plus the associated software. Operating on Both land and sea, direct, or via Internet based maps. Our two Directors having been in the vehicle tracking and communications industry, for nearly twenty years apiece. They offer a focused, individual and tailored service, to boat owners. Our total costs for this type of 'Tracker Device' we believe is the best and cheapest of any comparable Tracking System of this quality

About the Equipment

We offer two types of Tracking Systems, the first is a traditional unit which can be fitted below decks and the aerial mounted anywhere it can 'see' the sky. The second type is a full enclosed unit (the aerials are inside) which makes installation a doddle. Some units are weatherproof and can have internal back-up batteries. All report back to our central server, where you can log on with a phone, a tablet, or PC and instantly see where your craft is. The last few months history is stored on the same server, so you can instantly see where you were at anytime. There are also options like geo-fencing so you get an email when your vessels leaves a predetermined area.


Weekend Sailor

We offer a low rate for those who are not professionals and only use their boats at the weekend (the odd trip in the week is also acceptable) as long as you can clearly demonstrate they use the vessel for pleasure. BTW. Don’t worry if you live on the boat, our standard rate is not that bad either.

Hidden Charges

Put simply, there are none! You have two expenses, first the hardware you buy to fit in the boat and then your fixed monthly charge. This includes your use of the server, all airtime, connection charges and 7 day a week support. If you occasionally stray abroad, or use excessive data, but are not 'taking the mickey' its OK.

Covert Installation

Most of our customers use their boats for pleasure but we have some who offer their vessels for charter. If this is something you need we can advise you how to hide the equipment away and then give you a password locked access to the vessels history with full reports,you can run at your leisure.

Miscellaneous

If you occasionally pop over to Europe that’s OK on our Low and Normal rate, although permanent Med operation is a slightly higher. Included in the Normal monthly charge are extras like the ability to ring fence a location so for example you get an email when the boat leaves harbour, or the engines are started.


Marine Tracking Units

We have 3 different types of Tracking device, the most popular amongst our marine customers is the two models with built in aerials. The Standard one can be mounted under any Fibreglass or Wooden panel, but must be in the dry (Cabin / Cockpit roof behind the lining is a common place). If you are going to put it outside, then you need our second type the Weatherproof version (shown below). The third type is a very small box which you mount inside (usually by the batteries) and then run the aerials to an outside point (or again behind GRP or Wood). Click the link below for more information.

The Map Server

Our Map Server can be accessed from anywhere in the world with an internet connection. By default it works with PC's and tablets, but it all so has a 'phone mode' for the smaller screens. You can see our server software, by clicking the link below. This is live data with selected real boats. To see where the vessel is in real time, click on the Icon in the left box, to see where they have been click on the History tab. You can select different maps from the drop down menu, this include road maps and satellite views, as shown below. Of course it can do a lot more than that, want to know what?

Protecting your investment

Some companies selling Vehicle Tracking Systems seem to fail after the first six months! You are then left with equipment that no longer works and airtime you have paid for, but cannot use. We will not tie you into a long term contract and have been selling tracking systems to boat user for nearly twenty years.

About Us

We hope this website gives you an indication of what our system does. We like to keep things simple and easy to 'take in'. In other words - If we understand the technology, we believe you should not have to.

The two individuals running the service have been in the satellite location and communications industry for over ten years each (MD and CS of one of the industry leaders), until we both retired from the board in 2006, "to enjoy working with a small company again". 

Give us a call or if you prefer send us an email and we will call you back, advice is free and our system is fantastic.
