Nautic alert by Market Spectrum, Inc.® today announced the launch of the Nautic Alert Decision Platform™, an intelligent and learning marine telematics solution engineered to reduce risk of yacht sinking and early detection and notification of anchor slippage or unexpected movement from a mooring or dock
The parts of the system include the Controller called the Nautic Alert Nevata™ and the informative Nautic Alert Insight™.
There are other such level alerts, but this is by far the most sophisticated and also the most expensive.
Nautic Alert Decision Platform™
The Nautic Alert Platform is a revolutionary product for early detection and notification of key bilge events well in advance of high water conditions, as well as unexpected yacht movement. It keeps a yacht owner informed of vital pump and bilge events, as well as vessel location, both onboard and away to buy essential time for mitigating major issues. It features two products, the Nautic Alert Nevata and the Nautic Alert Nevata Insight.
The Nevata is a replacement for your float switches and can manage up to two bilge pumps in a redundant fashion. Nevata communicates wirelessly with Insight, and can let Insight know about several key bilge events, such as a failed pump, continuous runtime, trouble condition, or high water.
Insight is a small touch-screen device that can manage up to 10 Nevatas wirelessly. It gives a yacht owner a single point to see the bilge data, override their pumps, and get audible and visual alerts both at the helm and via text messages to their phone. Insight can even notify a harbor master about critical conditions, such as high water, where a prompt response is necessary.
Nevata is a waterproof solution that sits above the waterline and out of the elements, can see the waterline, and knows when the attached pumps are working properly. Combined with Insight, Insight offers additional event detection for increased pump activity, which can often be due to a through-hull fitting starting to fail.

Nautic Alert Decision Platform™ Manufacturers Comments
The patented Nautic Alert Decision Platform™ is an intelligent and learning marine telematics solution engineered to reduce risk of yacht sinking and early detection and notification of anchor slippage or unexpected movement from a mooring or dock.
An analysis conducted by BoatU.S. in April 2014 revealed “more than two-thirds of the reasons why boats sank could be considered preventable” and “69% of the boats that sank did so at the dock or while moored.” In many of these cases it was determined that the bilge pumps actually masked the problem for weeks or months, “keeping up with a small leak” until it became a big leak. Yacht components that start to fail such as sterndrive bellows, water hoses, below waterline fittings, and drain plugs usually provide warning signs such as an increase in the bilge water level, an increase in bilge pump activations, an increase in the operation time of the bilge pump for each cycle, as some example indicators. As a result, the Nautic Alert Decision Platform™ detects bilge related events before the occurrence of a high water condition using its advanced Multi-Fault capability, which learns the attached bilge pump characteristics and measures the water level using high-precision ultrasonic technology from the ceiling of the bilge compartment.
The Nautic Alert Decision Platform™ detects anchor slippage or unexpected movement from a mooring or dock using a high-precision Geofence solution, which creates a virtual ring around a yacht. If the Yacht (Blue Dot) crosses the green virtual ring boundaries, notification will occur on-board or to remote recipients.
