Yachting Ventures has confirmed further details about the line-up of startups to expect at the Innovation Corner, which aims to promote a dialogue between startups and wider industry professionals. The goal is to spark a conversation about the future of yachting and give startups a space to showcase new technologies.
Broadly speaking, the 12 startups chosen to exhibit as part of the Innovation Corner fall into two categories - those accelerating the digitalisation of the industry via software and platform solutions, and those accelerating the transition to greener technologies and alternative propulsion.
The use of digital tools, platforms and software is vastly improving efficiency and transparency for all stakeholders involved in the yachting industry - including yacht managers, yacht crew, charter & sales brokers, and marinas.
Crewdentials: a software platform to streamline credential management throughout the maritime industry. Founded in Guernsey in 2020 by a team of maritime, legal and tech professionals, the startup makes onboarding and compliance easy for crew and businesses.
Floatist: a new fleet management solution helping fleet operators improve their customer experience and digitize their business operations. The platform provides mobile check-in and check-out, a complete charter support app, and an advancement maintenance hub.
LJ eLogbooks: a 21st century solution for yacht data recording, providing paperless digital logbooks (Lloyds Register Certified and Flag State Compliant). Users can create, manage, edit and store all logbook data in the cloud and desktop app on one platform.
Mariners Log: Mariners Log brings your machinery data to life by utilising multiple data inputs to create in-depth analysis. The startup combines artificial intelligence into the analysis to turn reactive maintenance into predictive maintenance, saving time, money, and the oceans.
Wolfgang: the Wolfgang Pro platform allows central agents and brokers to manage cruise contracts as a more efficient alternative to the charter agreement. Wolfgang Travel allows stakeholders to design and operate bespoke cruises on board superyachts, and includes destinations, experiences, protections and insurances.

Metarina: Metarina changes the way boaters and marinas interact. The startup is creating a uniquely connected boating world through easy-to-use technology.
Yachting at the expense of the planet just doesn’t feel right anymore. There are a number of options available today that can make a big difference, including alternative propulsion and anchoring technologies.
HY-Plug: a consulting firm in marine energy transition for yachts and ports. The startup offers market studies related to hydrogen, electric and biofuels technologies.
RAD Propulsion: a UK-based marine business headquartered on the Solent. The startup is developing and selling a range of smart, connected electric marine propulsion products targeted at water users of all types, from paddleboarders to large boat owners.

The startup also offers exclusive services for its comunity of yachtsmen and women committed to eco-responsibility.
Swiss Ocean Tech: AnchorGuardian (developed and patented by Swiss Ocean Tech) offers a new dimension of safety at sea by minimising the risk of anchor drag, providing predictions and triggering immediate alarms with sub-meter accuracy. The solution monitors the movement & position of a ship’s anchor delivering intelligent data to support the crew while laying and lifting the anchor and while at anchor
BatteryCheck: BatteryCheck provides predictive battery analytics for IoT devices, helping to avoid battery-related device failure with continuous monitoring, alerts, and recommendations for maintenance.
