iPad on board

It’s not only the world’s most revolutionary, user-friendly and intuitive device, but the iPad also offers many opportunities for application on board superyachts. Taking the use of the iPad beyond its extensive range of standard apps for browsing the web, enjoying media content and reading books, Van Berge Henegouwen Installaties have turned the iPad into a control device for your on-board high-tech systems. Having recently equipped 12 areas with iPads on an 85-metre superyacht, Van Berge Henegouwen provides superyacht Owners with a new way to control their onboard audio visual systems, room environment settings and other integrated systems.

With its intuitive look and feel, high-speed operation and image as a state-of-the-art device, the iPad perfectly suits the superyacht industry where ease of use, integration and having the latest technology are key issues. With the touch of a finger, the owner and his loved ones can choose whether they want to watch a movie, satellite TV or listen to some music. The right mood for the selected activity can be created automatically by making for example the TV hinge down on a special ceiling lift, dimming lights and closing blinds. The finishing touch of the user experience is literally in the hands of the Owner.

Van Berge Henegouwen positions the iPad as an add-on to existing control system devices. With its aim to be at the cutting edge of yachting technology, VBH continuously strives to implement the latest technologies. The recent implementation of the first iPads to control on-board systems is only a first example – and the company promises that there are a lot more to come.
