Product Overview

CrewWatcher is an app-based crew overboard alarm system that is the fastest way to rescue a person who is overboard. The system works like a virtual lifeline and is made up of two components: a smartphone application and a small beacon that can be comfortably worn by each crew member. The beacon does not require complex manual activation. The alarm will trigger automatically in a Man Overboard (MOB) event. Should someone go overboard, the app, after sounding the alarm, will automatically provide lat/long coordinates of the MOB event, the time of the event, and will visually guide the rescuer using the virtual MOB compass.

  • FREE App operates on most smart phones or tablets and is easy to use
  • No cell service required
  • Automatically updates with new features (both App and beacon)
  • One smart device watches up to 5 crew members
  • Perfect also for children, pets, a towed dinghy or bilge alarm
  • Activates with water immersion OR separation from vessel
  • Rescue: Shows crew overboard bearing, plus distance and lat/long coordinates at point of loss
  • Bearing adjusts as boat moves and "virtual MOB Compass" points to location
  • 30x faster response than Personal AIS Beacon at 1/3 the price
  • WINNER, 2017 Sail Magazine Innovation Award
