We’re here to help you keep track of all your boat data. Cruise safely, with peace of mind!
TheBoatApp, powered by TheBoatDB, is your everyday tool for seamless tracking of all your boat data. Your logbook, inventory, tasks, checklists and more, in a single place, accessible via web and mobile apps, online as well as offline. A place for everything and everything in its place, resulting in safety onboard, peace-of-mind to cruise and a higher reselling value!
Systems and their status are crucial elements of keeping a boat seaworthy and the crew safe (…along with common logic and seamanship of course!). Systems need to be operational thus scheduled preventive maintenance is a must and mandatory many times from the manufacturer to keep warranty valid, using proper parts, proper procedure and so on. TheBoatApp is your Swiss-army-knife for registering all your boat’s systems and spares, and especially setting up timely alerts for maintaining them in time. This minimises the risk of cruising on expired or not timely/properly maintained systems, thus assuring greater boat seaworthiness and crew safety.
Legal compliance is a must for avoiding penalisation from the state authorities (e.g. coast-guard inspections) as well as declined insurance claims, that they may prove an even bigger burden to deal with. Have all your licenses, permits, inspections certificates and alike documents registered, along with their respective expiration dates and reminders to make sure you’ll renew them in time.
PEACE-OF-MIND (boat management best practices)
Cruising is about clearing up your mind and a mind to be clear needs to be de-cluttered, so it can relax and operate hassle-free. Simply put, peace-of-mind! Your mind knows of loose ends (e.g. tasks pending to be done) and it will keep pop-up a thought or two or more every now and then. Not much of peace-of-mind here! Boats are nowadays quite complicated machines with a tonne of sub-systems and tasks to be dealt with prior or during cruising. When your mind knows that you got it all catalogued with proper reminder alerts setup in a reliable system outside of your mind itself, it can then relax and enjoy the cruising tranquillity!
RESELLING VALUE (…and lower operational cost)
So, you are running a tight ship with safety addressed and peace-of-mind. Well done captain! What you also get as a side-bonus, is a higher boat reselling value! How so, you may ask. Well, let’s think of it a bit:
1. You have all your systems maintained in time, with proper parts and procedure
2. You also have a maintenance log to prove your diligence to any potential buyer, broker or even insurance agent
3. You have minimised failures and thus repairs, due to diligent maintenance, resulting in lower operational cost
4. You have all your inventory (systems, spares, etc) fully catalogued including part numbers, expiration dates, usage and maintenance documentation, etc
5. …and so on!
Following these, not only your boat will be in top-shape but you’ll always be able to provide proof if/as needed!
