Guests and crew who travel ashore from a recently completed 197ft (60m) motor yacht, whose striking lines set her apart from the rest, will have the chance to enjoy TV, Wi-Fi and music along the way. Veritais, a leading consultancy and supplier of audio-visual systems for luxury yachts, has just finished equipping the yacht’s luxury 10 metre Pascoe tender with state of the art entertainment system so that passengers can watch a 22 TV screen, use Wi-Fi, stream music and even view the tender’s Raymarine chart plotter information on the vessel bespoke iPad.
The tender itself is a luxury craft and was customised to match the yacht right down to the round portholes. So it’s not surprising that her on board AV and Wi-Fi details have received just as much attention. The limousine style means that passengers sit in comfortable sofa style seating running down each side of the yacht.
In the main saloon there is a 22” TV on a bulk head mounted bracket, a slim-line networked 5.1 audio visual receiver is connected to award-winning cube style 5.1 bulk head mounted speakers providing surround sound with a floor-standing subwoofer providing bass enhancement. A Blu-ray player allows playback of Blu-Rays, DVDs and CDs.
An Apple TV is also installed for Airplay connections from Apple and Android devices allowing users to send their music and / or videos to the TV wirelessly.
An all-in-one remote control provides one-button activation of activities such as “Watch TV” or “Watch DVD” where the system is automatically set up. This also allows for the equipment to be installed in hidden locations as the remote does not require line-of-sight. An iPhone, iPad or Android app is also included to control the system from anyone’s device.
There is also a clever motorised iPad dock installed in the main saloon which automatically ejects the iPad connector and brings the iPad forward when removed. The dock houses the iPad when not in use providing a place for it to sit and be charged when guests are not on board.
A network router and switch have been installed to provide fast, reliable network communication of the system for fast, reliable operation of the iPad and internet connectivity.
Veritais Ltd, which is based in the UK, but manages audio visual and communications installations on superyachts worldwide, designed the specification for Pascoe. “Pascoe’s brief was a great deal higher than the average for a tender’s onboard systems, even for one that belongs to a state of the art 2015-launched superyacht,” explains David Milner of Veritais. “We designed this specification according to the wishes of the owners for the guests to be able to party between the yacht itself and the shore or other destination.”
