Global market leaders in the provision of data, video, voice and Internet via satellite and wireless solutions, Excelerate Group implements its best in class satellite broadband service aboard the Super Yacht ‘Blush’, which is owned by Eddie Jordan’s family trust. 

Proof that reputation and word of mouth is the most powerful form of marketing has been no better evidenced than when Sean Read, Captain of the 155ft Super Yacht ‘Blush’, began looking for a better and more reliable Satellite Broadband service for the yacht.

As well as cost effectiveness and usability, Sean’s aim was to find a solution that could handle a broad range of applications aboard Blush, meeting the needs of the owner, the crew and guests alike, with the yacht being frequently chartered out.

Sean comments;

“Captains continually compare notes amongst our close knit user group concerning the services and technology we use. We required a more efficient setup than was supplied previously and Excelerate came highly recommended with their services being rated the best in this sector. Following another Captains experience with Excelerate and his high recommendations we naturally entered into conversations with Excelerate and a decision to move forward with them. Once the decision was made, the Excelerate team worked flexibly around our schedule, completing the installation in less than 48 hours from start to finish. The service was instantly up and running on completion of works in Nice Port and for our subsequent departure to our home berth in Monaco Port.

Since going live in Nice Port, during the journey back to Monaco and whilst moored in Monaco, every consistent test we run shows that Excelerate’s broadband service is precisely what was asked for and was promised. I’m pleased to report that this is now one less thing that I need to worry about when guests require an online experience that works”

David Savage, Excelerate Chairman and CEO says;

“Although we are the market leader in the provision of data, voice, video and Internet via satellite and wireless in the Emergency Services sector in the UK, Australia and the Middle East, maritime is a new area for us and yet a very logical one. We own significant satellite capacity anyway and our intellectual property and know how can be easily transferred. I believe Excelerate’s presence could shake up this market as we are offering customers more affordable and better performing broadband with applications that will aid yacht operation, owner and guest appreciation, crew welfare and security.”
