AIS is great for general navigation, identifying other vessels, collision avoidance etc. Here are some ideas to take AIS to the next level on a superyacht installation – ideas from a Class A AIS transponder for the main vessel to Class B/B+ systems for tender tracking, personal SARTs for crew and guests (for man-over-board safety) and even a new VHF DSC handheld which incorporates an AIS receiver and display for crew – great for keeping a handy eye on where the tenders are!
