Leading audio-visual specialist Marine AV is working in partnership with Southerly, market leader for variable draft cruising yachts to add wireless audio packages to its vessels. Marine AV has devised a wireless audio package that divides a boat into three zones all linked back to a small central server for Southerly.
This system enables individual music to be played in each zone, selected by remote control from the server, so that while guests in the cockpit may be enjoying some lively music, guests down below could be listening to something more relaxed. A flick of a switch can turn the yacht into one enlarged zone, with everyone enjoying the same sounds. Uploading CDs and MP3 files to the server is quick and easy.
“Systems like this are now available for as little as £2,000, and installation is quick and straightforward with minimal cabling,” said Marine AV’s David Milner.
“A high quality audio system reflects positively on the rest of the yacht,” added Ben Davies, sales manager for Northshore Shipyard, builders of Southerly yachts. “It’s a highly visible piece of interior equipment that reinforces our message of technology and quality. Offering a high quality audio system really contributes to our level of customer comfort, enjoyment and satisfaction.”
Marine AV has so far fitted multi-zone systems to a Southerly 47 and a 49 from Northshore, and another 47 is booked in for this spring. Marine AV provides a full installation service for those yards that prefer to outsource.
