São Paulo, Brazil / 23 September 2022 –Intermarine, Brazil’s largest luxury yacht builder has selected Satcom Direct, the connectivity solutions expert, as its preferred satellite broadband internet service provider. The deal, which was announced at this year’s São Paulo Boat Show, gives all Intermarine customers access to a privileged package of hardware, connectivity and value-added services which will enhance and strengthen reliable communications and connectivity while at sea.

The exclusive SD Brazil service includes a satellite antenna, the SD Marine Rack and SD Marine Router, with connectivity powered by Intelsat Flex Maritime. The low-profile rack-mounted router is based on the established SD Router family, which is currently flying on more than 2500 business aircraft. The router manages onboard connectivity and couples with the SD Marine Rack, to provide a standardized, modular solution for securely housing marine entertainment and communication electronics. The SD Marine Rack allows flexibility for Intermarine to install complementary electronic equipment, supports variable power demands, and enables the system to be scaled as necessary. The products are line-fit or available as an aftermarket solution through the Intermarine 360 after sales service.

“This deal resolves the growing frustrations that many boat owners experience when trying to find and acquire reliable internet connectivity technology for their yachts. Customers often have to search the market for dependable suppliers that can deliver the service and support their ongoing requirements. Customers were demanding a streamlined solution for broadband internet access at sea and with this agreement, we are satisfying that demand,” says Ewerton Libanio, Managing Director, Satcom Direct Brazil. The new relationship brings together two industry-leading brands both of which understand the specific requirements of VVIP users.

The secure, reliable, consistent, connectivity options support safety, productivity, and leisure communications to deliver voice and data communications, as well as streaming video. Customer interest in the practical solution is already high with delegates attending the Sao Paulo Boat Show requesting demonstrations at the SD Brazil booth in the Nautical Shopping zone.

In a first for multi-asset ownership, Satcom Direct Brazil is also offering the benefit of a seamless connectivity experience for Brazilian customers transitioning between private jets and yachts.  The advanced ecosystem of hardware and software meets International Maritime Organization requirements and enables flexible customized packages, simplified upgrades, and consolidated billing for owners already subscribing to SD aviation solutions.
