PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. – VesselVanguard announced today a new mobile app that gives boat owners an easier way to understand and manage all of the various maintenance requirements for their vessel and its systems and equipment. The app provides a simple, streamlined gateway for VesselVanguard subscribers to access its many innovative features and capabilities, with an interface custom-tailored for ease-of-use on the iPad.
“Since launching VesselVanguard three years ago, it has always been our priority to bring the boating community simple yet powerful tools that effortlessly inform them of needed maintenance and inspections,” said Don Hyde, founder and CEO, VesselVanguard. “Our new app puts key information at users’ fingertips to help them better maintain their boats from anywhere in the world – all for greater peace of mind.”
