When it comes to privacy, superyacht owners have to protect themselves against a multitude of attacks from every direction. Analogue radios, while trusty, have posed a security risk that official agencies can no longer ignore.
The time for digital solutions is here and telecommunication companies aimed specifically at the superyacht industry know this well. Channel 28 is keen in digital encryption, allowing an extra layer of protection in superyachts so that no one can snoop on their communications.
Maritime communications are still dominated by companies like Iridium, Kenwood, Standard Horizon, and Hytera. Superyacht owners will have to look closely at each provided solution and look to the future as upgrading to new equipment is not only costly but time-consuming too.
