CrewWatcher is a smart system that constantly checks if everyone is still onboard using your phone and a small, waterproof beacon.

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.

Key Features

  • 30 times faster than AIS: Alarmed and ready to guide your rescue in three seconds; Intuitive rescue guidance, no input required
  • For Everyone: Your spouse, your kids or even your dog; Equip the entire crew for the price of a single EPIRB
  • Two beacons included; Smartphone or other mobile device not included
  • Free app operates on most smartphones 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 five crew members
  • 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
  • Winner, 2017 Sail Magazine Pittmann Innovation Award
