A World First In Jet Ski Anti-Theft Technology

March 2017 News, Product


If you have a jet ski, odds are you’ve had at least a little concern over making sure it never gets stolen at the lake. With thousands of watercraft stolen every year, jet skis are right up there at the top, after all. But with the JetSkiWarden, your days of worry are over. This state-of-the-art technology can now digitally connect you with your jet skis via a mobile phone or tablet app so you can track, recover, and even immobilize them when necessary.

This product is developed by Boatwarden, a collaboration between Irish inventor, engineer and boating enthusiast Kevin Hennessey and Yorkshire entrepreneur Tom Cone. Says Hennessey, "We're using IP developed for our extremely successful OutboardWarden system to allow owners not only to track where their jet skis are, but also to find them anywhere in the world, on land or at sea, using GPRS and GSM technologies. Owners are alerted immediately once their jet ski goes beyond the perimeter of the pre-set Geo-Fence. A message is also sent to the owner's chosen support network - marina managers, a neighbouring boat or local security. Using an app on their mobile device, owners can also immobilise the craft so that it can't simply be ridden away. Whether they've left it on their boat, on a trailer or in the back of their pick-up truck, the jet ski won't work until they have personally reactivated it."

Cone adds, "JetSkiWarden is an amazing package of technology packed into a waterproof unit the size of a matchbox. It's the most affordable way to get a Guardian to watch over your jet ski, who will never rest, never sleep and never need a tea break! It offers peace of mind for pennies a day."
