Barnacle Systems Announced as “Most Innovative” Product at Vancouver International Boat Show

Victoria-based boat security and monitoring product has recently been named as Pacific Yachting’s “Most Innovative” product at the Vancouver Boat International Show.

Victoria BC – February 27, 2019 – Barnacle Systems Inc. ( has reinvented how people check on their boats. Their product, BRNKL (pronounced barnacle), is like a “home security system for your boat” allowing users to check in on their vessel remotely from their smartphone, tablet, or computer. Based in Victoria, BC, and founded in July of 2017, Barnacle Systems has recently been recognized as Pacific Yachting’s “Most Innovative” product at the Vancouver Boat Show.

“This is a very special award for our team,” explains Barnacle Systems Founder, Brandon Wright. “Pacific Yachting had us competing against giants such as Garmin and Raymarine. Being compared to such large companies this early-on is an honour and coming home with the award is a dream.” Barnacle System’s unique ‘Impact Monitoring’ technology was a focal point of the award; this impact technology allows boaters to understand if someone has bumped into their vessel at the dock or if their boat’s bouncing against a dock during a storm. The impact monitoring is also useful to charter companies that would like to know whether a vessel has run aground during a charter rental. The team at Barnacle Systems is continuing to develop additional market-leading features on their security and monitoring product that will continue to reinvent how people check on their boats.
