Excelerating toward a better future: A Captain’s story
Excelerate Marine provides end-to-end solutions in satellite communications, navigation, safety & security, IT & AV integration and more. The company’s aim has always been to make a captain’s day less stressful and an owner’s day better at lower cost, providing solutions that are fully fit for purpose and represent best practice, best of breed and best value for money. Watch the video to hear all about it from Founder and Chairman of Excelerate Group David Savage.
At Monaco Yacht Show, Savage caught up with Captain Julian Sincock to hear about his experience with Excelerate so far and his future requirements. Sincock is the Captain of busy charter yacht Princess AVK, a 155 Foot Sunseeker Motor Yacht delivered in 2016 and based in the South of France – here’s what he had to say about the company:
What did the Captain say?
“This week marks the end of an incredibly busy charter season that has given us eighteen weeks of charter activity, taking our guests through the South of France, Monaco, Italy, Sardinia, Corsica, The Balearics and Southern Spain. We Captains are very quick to complain when we get let down by our suppliers but as we start to think about the things that need doing for the next season I thought it would make a refreshing change to impart a good news story about one of our supplier partners Excelerate Technology.
If you are a busy charter yacht or if you just want to keep your boss happy you can’t afford not to talk to Excelerate about their Satellite Broadband and Satellite TV solutions and pricing – they literally made every day easier for me and my crew and kept my charter guests happier at flexible and affordable prices, giving me more for my euro than ever before. I can’t be any more direct – what Excelerate promised at the outset worked better than I could have hoped for and I’ve just had my first charter season ever without a single complaint from our guests about their internet and TV experience anywhere we cruised. Of course, Excelerate do more than Satellite Broadband and Satellite TV, so now we are in discussions about giving them even more of our business because their real-time remote and onboard technical support is also the best I’ve ever experienced, it’s like having my own IT department onboard. We plan to use them in other areas so that they can take even more pressure off me and my crew and give my owner and guests a better experience at a more economical price.”
The winter refit season is upon us. If owners, guests, Captains and crew are experiencing substandard connectivity, now is the time to reconsider providers.
