GOSTThe GOST® (Global Ocean Security Technologies) Nav-Tracker line of GPS tracking systems utilitzes the Inmarsat Satellite Constellation for all communication and control, providing complete global coverage everywhere in the world except the extreme poles.

Nav-Tracker systems report to the GOST Nav-Tracker website where customers can   add up to 10 recipients to receive emails/text messages from the system, as well as remotely arm and disarm a 500-meter geofence around the vessel. If the boat moves outside of the geofence when armed, the system will send geofence breach messages with the speed, heading, and location of the vessel to designated recipients. Different GOST Nav-Tracker systems are available to meet the needs of boat owners, such as the GOST Nav-Tracker 1.0 Insurance package which provides tracking only and includes a push button to locally arm and disarm the geofence.  

Originally designed for center consoles, the GOST NT-Evolution 2.0 features remote security and monitoring, as well as tracking. The GOST NT-Evolution 2.0 is also capable of up to five wireless relays to control any AC/DC function on board. One of these relays can even be utilized with Lumishore Ltd. Underwater LED lights to pulse when the GOST system goes into alarm, increasing visibilty of a stolen boat at night. Customers who purchase a Nav-Tracker 1.0 basic tracking system can upgrade at any time to another GOST Nav-Tracker system, utilizing the same Nav-Tracker antenna. Additional GOST Nav-Tracker systems can be found on the GOST website.


Wireless Security & Monitoring System

The GOST Phantom can support up to 64 wireless sensors for security and monitoring and 8 wireless relays to control any AC/DC functions on board your vessel. Monitor high water in the bilge, low voltage, loss of shore power, temperatures in bait & food freezers, smoke, intrusion and much more. Sophisticated, marinized deck pressure sensors, door contacts, dual optical passive infrared motion sensors and pull sensors alert you to intrusion or potential theft on your vessel. “Prevent the event” by programming a siren and flashing lights to go off when a sensor is triggered and deter thieves immediately. When an event occurs, the GOST Phantom will call/text up to 8 phone numbers with a voice recording or text message letting you know the vessel’s status and the event that has occurred. GOST Phantom and GOST Insight HD packages are available which include recommended  security and monitoring sensors, GPS tracking, and/or remote video surveillance.


Global Remote Video Surveillance System

The GOST Watch HD 3G packages include everything needed to remotely monitor all activities onboard the vessel,  anywhere in the world over the internet. Watch live video of the yacht as it leaves the harbor or view activities in the salon, staterooms or engine room from any PC or smartphone with internet access. Cameras can be set to record and send video clips via email or text message when motion is detected. The system can accommodate up to 6  cameras per login. The GOST Watch HD app is available to download for free on Apple and Android devices.


GOST Watch HD VIP Series packages are also available which provide high definition surveillance using a high speed internet connection through the KVH line of mini-VSAT Broadband? systems, along with a penta-band GSM/CDMA cellular data communicator for use when in cellular coverage areas. Vessels equipped with the GOST Watch HD video surveillance system and FLIR M-Series thermal night vision cameras can also have access to website based remote PTZ control of FLIR cameras on board and can view live streaming video of onboard cameras from anywhere in the world. The easy-to-use, web-based pan, tilt, zoom and mode control interface on the GOST Watch HD website works  

like the control puck on board, with a few modifications that enhance the capabilities for remote surveillance.  

The most noteworthy of these modifications is a one touch “Surveillance Scan” button that instantly performs a peripheral sweep of the area immediately surrounding the vessel.

CYOB Destinations: We Visit the Hilton Beach Marina

Hilton BeachBy Amelia Morris

Ah Canadian simplicity at its finest; small town, big marina. Little Hilton Beach (population 200!), which I am lucky enough to call my cottage country, is located on the north-east coast of St. Joseph Island. The Hilton Beach Marina is one of the largest and most major ports of call in the Western North Channel. It also has a long and rich history dating back to the 1850’s.

I spoke with Marina Manager, Laura McRae and got the full scoop on what goes on in this inconspicuous but busy marina.

Scarab 255 Open

Scarab 255 OpenBy Andy Adams and John Armstrong

You can imagine,at the GroupeBeneteau dealer meeting in Michigan last fall where all the Four Winns, Scarab, Wellcraft, and Glastrondealers had come to see the latest new models, the docks were lined up with gleaming brand-new boats to show the dealers and media – and they certainly put on a show! But for me, the Scarab 255 Open was an immediate stand out. This is a boat that breaks new ground and brings fresh thinking and interpretation of the boating experience to a wide range of buyers.

We had a quick look around but the test drives would have to wait until the next day.
