Smart locks for yachts appoints exclusive distributor

Victoria, Malta and Catfield, Norfolk (UK)

Smart Locks for Yachts recently agreed an exclusive UK distribution partnership with Trend Marine Products Ltd. ahead of both companies’ presence at Metstrade earlier this week.

At the show Smart Locks for Yachts demonstrated its innovative smart marine lock system on Trend Marine Products’ latest sliding doors during the Amsterdam-based show, one of the yachting world’s flagship industry events.

The important partnership between Trend Marine Products, an international leader in the design and manufacture of marine doors and glazing products, and Smart Locks for Yachts, the pioneers behind the yachting industry’s sought-after Remotekey system, is a significant step forward for both brands in the international marine market.

An easy-to-use encrypted smart locking solution, Remotekey can be wirelessly fitted to both exterior and interior doors aboard almost any vessel. Fitted by simply swapping out with the old key lock with smart the Euro or Trioving cylinder locking system, both the Remotekey and superyacht system enable the owner or captain to control access from a central point on board or remotely - and, crucially, without extensive refit. Removing the old-fashioned key and lock mechanism, the system also allows users to download access logs and lock down certain zones of the vessel for complete peace of mind.

Remotekey’s cutting edge Networked Key Pad feature, which was globally debuted at Metstrade, allows remote access to change PINs and utilises the secure radio network to unlock doors or can activate a relay to overcome range restrictions. Mounted in its waterproof enclosure, it is ideal for dockside use to extend or retract a yacht’s passarelle.

As part of the exclusive distribution deal, Trend Marine will provide upgrades to customers’ existing doors and also supply tailored smart lock packages to its current and existing OEM clients.

Iain Davie, founder and CEO of Smart Locks for Yachts, said, "Having developed our smart marine locking systems to suit all aspects of yacht access control over the past three years, we are looking forward to the next stage of our brand development in an exclusive partnership with Trend Marine. “It is the perfect fit: Our innovative smart locking systems and the manufacturer of so many of the marine doors we have been fitting them into. Trend Marine is globally renowned for its quality and innovation in design. We are very excited to include our smart marine lock solutions within its catalogue of marine doors”.
