Yamaha and Siren Marine have announced a new mobile app featuring integration with Yamaha outboards and control systems. The Siren Connected Boat app, which will be available for download on February 15, 2024, will have the ability to personalize the boating experience, combining the branded look of the customer’s boat builder with specific information curated especially for them.
“Through Siren Connected Boat, Yamaha and Siren offer never-before-seen innovation and benefits that allow boat owners to ‘be’ on board their boat even when they can’t be in person,” said Andrew Cullen, Director, Connectivity, Yamaha U.S. Marine Business Unit. “The app is designed to put everything a customer needs to know about his or her boat at their fingertips. It also gives them the ability to leverage Siren technology and all the benefits of remote connectivity, security and monitoring.”
Siren Connected Boat combines real-time vessel security, multiple and flexible boat monitoring and tracking functions, and convenience features including remote digital switching. Through the mobile app, customers have access to and the ability to control all of these features from their smartphones or smart watches.
In addition, Siren can now integrate with Yamaha’s Command Link Plus protocol which enables the Siren Connected Boat to automatically remind boaters and their preferred dealers about scheduled maintenance requirements and due dates based on actual engine use. It also contains all maintenance records for the boat, updated by either the servicing dealer or the DIY boater. With the help of a new low power mode, customers can extend their battery life during times when full functionality is not needed (such as winterization) or when boat power availability is limited.
The new Siren Connected Boat mobile app will be available for download in the U.S. on February 15, 2024. It comes in a basic free tier as well as premium tier that requires installation and activation of a Siren 3 Pro main device and cellular service. Siren 3 Pro system hardware starts at $797, and cellular as low as $18.75/month.
Dealers have the ability to install Siren 3 Pro devices on site. In addition, select boat builders now offer Siren 3 Pro as standard equipment on select 2024 model year boats. Currently, those boat builders include Grady-White, Regulator Marine, SunCatcher by G3 and Skeeter. Additional builders offering Siren 3 Pro as a standard feature will be announced soon.
