US firm to sell, service and install Böning electronics and smart bridges for yachts

Ocean Link Inc, a marine plumbing specialist based in Portsmouth, Rhode Island, has been certified by Germany’s Böning Group to sell, service and install ship automation products for yachts.

The Böning products now available through Ocean Link include a smart bridge with touchscreen control for ships’ systems, alarm and monitoring systems, display panels and control units.

Ocean Link’s technicians have been trained by Böning in the customisation, installation programming, and servicing of the entire Böning range.

“Böning’s products perfectly complement our existing products and service,” says Terri Cortvriend, owner and manager of Ocean Link Inc. “Many of the systems we currently sell and install on yachts can be integrated into Böning’s monitoring packages.”

For yacht owners or operators, Ocean Link representatives can identify the control and monitoring opportunities on an existing vessel and provide specific product recommendations from the Böning line.

For smaller yachts, a Böning package may include engine and systems monitoring, data displays, and alarms. For larger yachts, Böning can provide a complete smart bridge solution that connects most any system into one central point with graphic displays and touchscreen controls.
