Connected at Sea
Learn how the latest satellite technology from KVH provides entertainment and peace of mind.
Sea Ray owners know well that their boats represent more than an escape on the water—they’re a platform for a complete lifestyle. One fact of modern life is all but inescapable: Enjoying a complete lifestyle means having the ability to use your phone, get online and, yes, occasionally watch TV, even at sea. Moreover, a strong connection provides an added sense of security.
As the preferred satellite technology solution for Sea Ray, KVH® provides Sea Ray sport yacht and yacht owners with this connectivity. KVH antennas make it possible for owners and their guests to have it all, including high-quality entertainment and high-speed internet service, whether cruising the coast or offshore.
Satellite television on the boat is a welcome option, a way to keep everyone entertained during long cruises or bouts of inclement weather. (It also turns your Sea Ray into a great place to watch the big game.) Fully stabilized KVH TracVision TV antenna systems are rugged enough for fresh and saltwater marine environments yet extremely simple to install and use. Everyone onboard can enjoy their favorite programming, whether it be on a smartphone, tablet, TV or laptop. With a wide array of available systems, including the TracVision line and the HD-series, KVH also provides an online configurator to help you determine the system that best suits your satellite TV needs.
Sea Ray 580 Sundancer owner Richard Holtz uses the TracVision HD7 to stay connected on long cruises in and around Florida. “What has impressed me the most about TracVision is that it works precisely as it should,” he says. “Boaters want hassle-free reception and performance, and that’s what you get with the HD7.”
Even more than TV, internet access is essential these days. For coastal and offshore voyaging, a boater wanting satellite internet access needs to install a maritime satellite communications antenna system on the boat and also subscribe to a maritime satellite service provider’s airtime plan. KVH provides both the antenna system and airtime plan, and is unique in the marine industry for offering a complete service through its global mini-VSAT Broadband network.
Boater Juan Ramirez Manriquez of Mexico counts on the award-winning TracPhone V3-IP satellite antenna system when he’s out on Allegra II, his 54-foot Sea Ray. “The TracPhone V3-IP was easy to set-up and is even easier to use when we surf the web, send and receive emails or make a phone call,” he says. “We selected the TracPhone V3-IP system and mini-VSAT Broadband service for the Allegra II based on affordability of both the antenna and airtime, and on KVH’s brand strength.”
So whether you’re at the dock or underway, exploring the Great Lakes or setting out for the Bahamas, with KVH, you can enjoy the benefits of satellite TV and internet. Visit KVH.com for more information, including exclusive incentives for Sea Ray owners.
