digital boat

Valuable ever-ready allies in our pocket, which have also become indispensable on board. We are talking about smartphones, which are no longer just phones but also professional cameras, chartplotters, and weather stations. Or you can use them to visit a boat show, the digital one at the
Milan Yachting Week
. Just download the free app! However, it is important to have your smartphone charged at all times, especially since the applications you use on the boat, such as those for navigation and onboard electronics, are very energy intensive. A powerbank, perhaps waterproof, is a good solution; even better is Scanstrut’s wireless charger, which keeps your smartphone charged and firmly at the console, without the risk of losing or breaking cables. In addition to smartphones, on-board electronics allow for a very comfortable vacation without giving up. Did you know that it only takes a little to have potable water directly from your sink? And that you can have espresso without a mocha and without a bulky machine?
