Victoria, BC – Barnacle Systems, a Canadian manufacturer of boat security and monitoring products, has announced an OEM partnership with Canadian boatbuilder KingFisher Boats. KingFisher’s 2022 Offshore and Coastal series of boats will offer a mobile app experience with real-time health and security monitoring from the vessel’s critical systems.
“Our goal at KingFisher Boats is to enrich lives while spending time on the water,” says Stefan Depner, Product Development Manager at KingFisher Boats. “The BRNKL remote monitoring experience will give our owners peace of mind knowing that their boat is safe and secure and help prevent downtime.”
KingFisher boat owners can choose to protect their boats by adding one of three monitoring systems: Monitoring, Security and Monitoring, or Premium. The BRNKL Monitoring option provides remote monitoring capabilities for the boat’s batteries, bilge pumps, shore power connection, cabin temperature and humidity, impact monitoring, and GPS tracking. The BRNKL Security and Monitoring option expands upon the Monitoring package by adding a camera, door sensor, siren, and key fob. While the Premium option further expands the capabilities by adding a second camera and an outdoor laser sensor for the aft deck for superior protection of the vessel. The systems can either be installed at the KingFisher factory or at a local dealer.
CEO of Barnacle Systems, Brandon Wright, says “knowing that KingFisher boat owners are an intrepid bunch, we want to ensure that their boat is ready to go at a moment’s notice. You never know when adventure is going to call and arriving to a boat with dead batteries or with stolen gear is not an acceptable experience. This is where BRNKL will help.”
