MTN Satellite Communications and Sensory International Partner to Deliver Global VSAT Services and Connectivity to Superyachts

Sept. 21, 2011


MTN Satellite Communications (MTN), and Sensory International,  announced a partnership to provide integrated VSAT services and connectivity to superyachts. As a result of this partnership, customers now have a single source for procuring all of their onboard automation requirements supported by the most reliable VSAT connectivity available.


"Over the past 10 years, we have honed and perfected our craft in the most challenging and critical environments of all: aboard superyachts. Our systems include audio-visual, security, lighting control, IT networking, communications and any other type of demand customers may have," said Nigel Sherlock, Business Development Manager for Sensory International. "MTN has built a reputation as being the VSAT provider of choice in the larger yacht market and we know that they will provide our customers with the most reliable connectivity to ensure their services are 'always on.'"


Sensory will provide MTN's reliable VSAT services and support to its customers that own yachts 50 meters or more in length. In addition, MTN's VSAT systems will serve as the cornerstone product in Sensory's new Communications Division. The companies are beginning to work together on projects and training Sensory's staff to provide technical support for MTN's VSAT solutions to ensure that customer service is consistent around the globe.


"Sensory International was founded by two former superyacht captains, so they have an intimate understanding of the connectivity requirements for these vessels," said Kerry Pettitt, Head of Business Development for MTN's yacht division in EMEA and Asia. "This knowledge, coupled with MTN's expertise in the satellite communications market, will provide the industry with leading connectivity on some of the world's most luxurious yachts."
