SYTN Editor in Chief spent the day the owner of MY Excelerate Z , Chairman of what I believe could be one of the most disruptive tech companies to ever enter the Superyacht sector.
Following the success of our Talking Tech Part 1 of SY Black Pearl I was invited by David Savage to view the first R & D superyacht in the industry.
Over the last year, I have got to know David Savage and his team. I recently was asked who I saw as the most disruptive company of 2019, I have no doubt that it might well be Excelerate technologies.
I first visited the HQ of the Excelerate Group nearly 18 months ago in Wales. I expected a small facility and I got a science park supplying tech to half the worlds governments and most of the UK’s emergency services. From cameras that can climb lamp posts to cameras that can see a number plate through fog from 4 miles away it was an array cutting-edge technology ripe for transfer to our sector. The core activity of the Excelerate group remains communication, total, flawless and cost effective communications because as David told me ” When you supply governments and emergency services you don’t get second chances”.
With new offices in Sophia Antipolis and a team of engineers, this goliath has it’s eyes turned firmly to the Superyacht Sector
How was it done?
David Savage, Founder and Chairman of Excelerate Group, is on a mission to change the ongoing perception that VSAT solutions for yachts are always expensive and poor quality. As a platform to educate the industry, Excelerate Marine recently purchased a Sunseeker 94 Motor Yacht – known as Excelerate Z.
