Designed for all vessels up to 65 feet

The marine internet kit has been designed to suit both power and sail vessels up to 65 feet. We have been selling internet kits for a number of years and over this time have refined the kit to embrace new technologies and customer requirements.

Our kits include a high quality 3G/4G/4GX modem with integrated Wi-Fi access point. The modem will connect to the nearest cellular tower and then re-distribute this internet connection via it’s inbuilt Wi-Fi access point for all devices onboard to share the common and fast internet connection.

The kit includes two 4G antennas which we recommend that at least one of these is mounted as high as possible on the boat. We only use high grade LMR-400 coax cables for these antennas, as this is the only way to ensure a reliable and fast signal. The kit includes 10m of cable by default but we can option this to longer lengths as required. The modem is designed to be powered from either the vessels 12V DC source or can be plugged into a 240V mains supply if present.

Upon receiving and installing the kit all you need to do is insert a nano sized SIM card (That’s the same size as used in most mobile phones) into the modem and power on. We have configured the modem, including setting up passwords and enabling Wi-Fi settings, so you can simply connect to the available Wi-Fi network and start enjoying the high speed internet connection.

Testimonials & Performance

We are often asked by customers if the kit will work at a particular location. What we always say is that if the antenna can “see” a land based cellular tower then there is an extremely good chance of a connection. This is why installation height is key, as the higher you can get the antenna located, the further it can see over the horizon.

For some locations we are asked about we have had many customers report successful and reliable connections at. The most common location in Queensland seems to be Lady Musgrave Island. If the antenna is mounted at least 9m above the water than connectivity at Lady Musgrave is almost always achievable. Not only that, I have at least one client who streams Foxtel while in the lagoon at Lady Musgrave.

I went out on the weekend to check as many ‘no reception’ points on my yacht as possible near me! I can confirm that the internet is working amazingly and I have full reception everywhere!  Its quite amazing. I got and sent phone calls, messages, and was able to stream the live news and iview- I’m absolutely delighted!” – Sue
