Smart Ship Features

From any point, out at sea, the captain can activate Smart Ship in order to guide the boat to the nearest available berth. Upon arrival at the berth, the retractable hydraulic arms will dock the boat and all marina utilities (such as water, electricity and fuel supplies) will be delivered via the arms.

Smart Ship includes autopilot characteristics with GPS, radar, wind sensors, depth sensors, ship displacement information, tidal information, hydraulic arms and distance sensors.

The hydraulic arms can be used in stern, port, starboard and bow docking. If necessary, side hydraulic arms can be incorporated to negate the need for fenders. Anchor deployments can also be incorporated. Moor Smart will lead to more efficient use of fuel and marina space, as vessels can be docked closer together, with fewer failed docking attempts, and use the path of least resistance due to the sensing capabilities and accuracy of the system.

Although there are other automated systems designed for private yachts, they are not fully automated. Different grades of Smart Ship are available from fully automated docking to semi-automated docking.
