Mega Yacht

Shocking value of SuperYacht Web!





Ever questioned how Ships and Super-Yachts hook up to the Web? No they will not use ‘cable modem’ (I have essentially been questioned that!) They do not have a really prolonged cable connected to shore! Right here I explain the distinct strategies tremendous-yachts use engineering to hook up and how they switch over when they are in port or at sea.

  1. Actually airliners do use VSAT for comms due to the cheaper rates and faster speeds than INMARSAT. They used phased array antennas due to their elevation above cloud cover which leads to less atmospheric attenuation to deal with. Phased array antennas have much less gain than a parabolic reflector of your typical 3-axis antenna.

    I used to work for MTN as first a technician and then a NOC technician and had a large airline provider using our services.

    This video is 100% spot on and there is no other misinformation than VSAT is priced in bits, not bytes.

    Also, global VSAT providers are more expensive than your average land or regional provider because they have to lease space on satellites globally year round. In the summer yachts and cruise ships are in Europe and Alaska (Alaskan coverage is HORRIBLE), and in the winter they are all in the Caribbean and south of the equator. However they are still required to service that area year round. That's a huge cost.

    A typical service call for a VSAT technician to repair your $50k-$120k antenna will run you $1250.00 per day plus all travel expenses. But the service you get is great, if after 2 hours of remote troubleshooting your system is not repaired, a technician is dispatched ASAP. Yes, I have gotten calls at 10PM to dispatch at 6am for a flight from USA to Europe. We had to keep travel bags in our car. Crazy job.

  2. Please give us a "tour" of your yacht. You say "We" all the time.

  3. And the worst part? It’s virtually unchanged for the last 20 years. We’re promised that new system is coming next month that’ll blow them all away for half the price! So, get ready to scrap 100k in equipment to make room for the new gear!

  4. I do not usually intervene negatively, but I will do it. The prices are exhorbitant, at the limit of the flight. The argument of coverage, the availability of a technician, etc. are false arguments. You pay a price, the service must follow. Whether maritime or terrestrial, there is no service worthy of the name. You pay for the blanket, wherever you are. Everything is directed towards the dividends of the shareholders and not the customer. Here's the problem. This does not affect the communications companies alone.

  11. I would bet money that ALL of the big boats and everything onboard them and related to the boat is a business expense.

  13. I wonder if Starlink will crack into the market. I'm not sure if they have plans to go global yet and they just launched their first round of satellites.

  14. If I am not mistaken the 3 mast schooner in the foreground at :16 into the video is the Shenandoah of Sark. Beautiful boat built in 1902.

  21. You are mistaken Mbps (Megabitpersecond) for MByte!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Mbps is describing the speed of data transfer, whilst MByte is the amount of data transfer 😉 So, the amount, in most cases, is unlimited, whilst the speed comes up to cost! :-)))

  22. Iv been following a lot of your videos and love what you have posted! You should look up a boat expedition through the north west passage called C3. On that boat they had broadband with wifi to everyone onboard that was fast enough to stream youtube!

  23. thx bro

  24. Almost cheaper to just buy a 100km long ethernet cable that you drag after the boat connected to a PC on land!

  25. Wait a minute, wait a minute, Wait a Minute, back in the late 80' and early 90's I brought into sailboat part-time owner deal kinda like the condo deals back then like sailboat time shares and back then all of us was talking about Mariner net which was provided pretty much to all offshore mariners round the world but it was being abused because then everyone had to have and pay for internet service providers and mariner.net was free, but the speed sucked because at the time 56k was the new speed and mariner.net was only good for 9.600kb in speed speed, was mariner.net done away with, I know that people cans send voice text and gif (pictures) using there sat phone, lol to hear tell the USA government was trying to give the the world free internet except for its own citizens, my question is is mariner.net still in service or not viable anymore and the way I took it is a least always beable to make internet calls send text and share a few pictures and get weather updates , but maybe that's just good enough for small cruisers and maybe that's just the sat phone data limitations

  28. No wonder Elon Musk is after this internet satellites market. Prices should drop substantially.

  30. I had to tell the wee woman she wouldna be chattin up her girlies an sending tham big 4k vids back 'n forth evry hour of evry day day once we grt underway an down roundin the Horn. She don' reall unnerstand, she thinks it's like having a long mains cord. She aksed me why we couldna put up our own wee satelite and have it follow us around way up in the sky like a doggie comin outta obedience class. Aach, I gotta love the wee woman, 'specially since I couldna ever have bought her this nice hundred meter yacht on me wages as a pub bouncer… but she made me promise never to mention her inheritance, or her trust fund, or her string of corporations… so I'll just tuck that 'uge internet bill in with the ones for my special all-girl clean-up crew, you know, the women that do special projects for me in return for a few baubles 'n trinkets, and suitcases of cash. Aye, bein' a bouncer had its dangers, but nothing like sneakin' aboard the entire Swedish Nude Massage Team in uniforms coverin' their tight little bums down to there pink pedicured toeses.

  40. This is an example of the biggest scam in WiFi. That somehow bandwidth and connection speed is scarce. Nope! This is pure profiteering.

  41. Elon Musk might solve your internet issues soon (SpaceX Starlink).

  42. If you think the Internet is expensive try paying the fuel bill. 500 gallons an hour at 10-12 knots , so you burn 500 gallons and go approximately 12-14 miles and gas on the ocean is expensive! I assure you the internet is an afterthought.

  44. There are bits and bytes. 1 bit = 1/8 of a byte. Important to know when making videos like this.
