Make no compromise with the safety of your boat
Boats spend most of their time in their home marina. During these long storage periods, boats are exposed to aggressive conditions (corrosion, galvanic currents, etc.) which may have a serious impact on their safety. SENSE4BOAT is an innovative and award-winning system which combines modern technology and our lasting experience in the marina industry to ensure the maximum safety of every boat during the long storage periods in the marina.
Monitoring your boat 24/7
We are using the cutting-edge Internet-of-Things (IoT) technology to monitor all the vital parameters of your boat and to detect potential threats for your boat long before they become a real hazard.
As a boat owner, you can now equip your vessel with our sensors which can sense the presence of the water, detect heat in the engine area and smoke in the cabin, or simply monitor your batteries. If any of the measurements should raise any concern, the system will automatically alert you as an owner, but even more importantly, it can notify your home marina. Based on those warnings, the marina staff can take appropriate actions to save your property.
Smart water and heat sensor
This smart sensor will detect the most important safety hazards to your boat: heat and water intrusion.
In order to detect heat (above 105°C), we use the patented technology of the US-based manufacturer Protectowire, developed specifically to detect heatin the most demanding conditions, such as aeroplanes, industrial plants, power plants, oil rigs etc.
This sensor monitors your batteries and provides you with all the relevant information and informs you of actions to be taken, such as when to recharge your batteries or whether there is a sudden voltage drop due to a potential short circuit. The battery life expectancy can be significantly extended with our sensors and proper maintenance (up to 10 years).
This sensor will warn you if smoke is detected in you cabin, indicating a potential fire threat.
You will be notified, but more importantly your home marina can also be notified immediately. This simple and inexpensive sensor can prevent enormous damage not only on your boat, but on nearby boats as well.
Starting from only 60 € annually
Now you can monitor your boat 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year for a negligible fee. All sensors can be purchased separately, and you can buy additional sensors anytime and add them seamlessly to your existing system.
Mobile application for boat owners
The SENSE4BOAT mobile application displays all data and information collected from different sources in a simple and structured form.
If your marina is using our software, you can momentarily see the latest photo of your boat, an inspection log from the marina with the list of marina employees who checked your boat and potentially carried out activities required to protect your property. Regardless of your marina, you can instantly check all the measurements collected from the various sensors you installed on your boat as well as possible alerts or warnings generated by those sensors.
Access your boat’s photos, check out the marina staff’s activities and have continuous insight into the status of your contract.
Measurements from all the installed sensors are displayed in simple form. You can click on the measurements for more information.
If an alert requires your attention or action, you will be notified via the mobile application, email and voice call.
The marina will be notified as well via email and voice call, allowing for an immediate reaction.
Using the SENSE4BOAT mobile application, you will be able to immediately see the status of your sensors – the strength of their signals, the status of their batteries and more.
Our system works best connected to your home marina
If your home marina is not equipped with our software yet, and you as a marina customer want to have the all the benefits described above, please recommend us to your home marina. This will allow your marina to receive key alerts regarding the safety of your boat (heat, water intrusion, smoke), as well as additional measurements that will allow the marina to provide you with better services, such as battery recharging and the like.

We can significantly extend the life expectancy of your batteries
Batteries are generally supposed to last at least 7-10 years according to the manufacturers’ specifications. However, due to improper maintenance, they usually last only 3-4 years.
Most boat owners are not aware that batteries discharge on their own at a rate of up to 5 % per month. If you do not charge your batteries immediately, sulfatization occurs and your battery permanently loses some of its capacity.
The ideal battery maintenance would be to have a permanent shore supply and modern battery charger which has the functionality to continuously charge the batteries (float mode). However, a permanent shore supply is not allowed in most marinas due to the fire & safety regulations. Permanent shore supply is also very problematic because of a significant increase in galvanic currents (a closed electrical circuit through the common ground wire with the marina).
Therefore, the only workable solution is to receive the information on when to recharge the batteries and to recharge them properly either by yourself, by your marina staff or by subcontractors. Our system will notify you when to recharge you batteries to prevent damage from sulfatization.
Our satisfied customers

I would like to tell you about my experience 1 month after installing my SENSE4BOAT sensors. I am very satisfied with the sensors, the installation was child’s play to do, since the sensors need no power supply from the outside, no cables were necessary for the installation. The battery sensors are just great, I can see from home whether my batteries are charged and in what condition they are. The bilge sensor and fire detector are also great safety features for my boat. Should something really happen, the marina can provide immediate help and keep the damage in check. I’m happy to find such a great product in the marina, keep it up. A very successful product, which I can only recommend to every boater.
I left the main switch of my batteries on, and the voltage of my batteries dropped within hours to levels which might have damaged my batteries. Luckily, I got a low battery warning from SENSE4BOAT and saved my batteries.
I had a hunch that my left engine battery was reaching its end, but no measurements to prove it. It is very difficult to determine when the battery needs to be replaced if you don’t have proper measurements. Thanks to the battery monitoring sensor I got a warning to replace the damaged battery.
