Hey, Marine Electronics Installers…

…Have you ever wondered where the word “yacht” comes from? You might be surprised to find out that it doesn’t mean “luxury boats.”

So, what’s up with the word yacht? Well, it comes from the 16th century Dutch word jaghtschip. That word is actually a combination of two other Dutch words, jachte and schip. So, what do they mean? Well, jachte is the Dutch word for “hunting” and schip is “ship.” So, hunting ship? Yes, exactly. But what’s that? Apparently, it’s how the 16th Century Dutch referred to pirate ships. It makes sense if you think about it. Pirates were on the hunt when they were out to sea, which is completely different from…

…Today’s Yachts and Superyachts

You won’t find any pirates on them. These vessels are used to provide the ultimate luxury boating experience. Whether it’s a commercial or private yacht charter, the average yachting experience typically involves sunny, exotic locales and the finer things in life. That’s the whole point, right? Of course, we don’t need to tell you this. Marine electronics professionals like you know all about the yacht life.

Speaking of Luxury Boats…

…DIRECTV is one luxury service that you deliver to yacht owners. When these folks decide on a DIRECTV package, it’s up to you to install the marine satellite dome, receivers, and everything else on their craft. You’re an expert at all this but we’re guessing that there’s one part of the job that sucks up a lot of your time. We’re talking about activating the DIRECTV account, of course.

When you’re done with the installation, you probably call AT&T’s global call center. Since you’re one of hundreds, maybe thousands of callers, you’ve probably been put on hold more than a few times. Have you been bounced around from extension to extension, too? That’s not uncommon either. What if we told you that you could have free DIRECTV activation in as little as 10 minutes? You can get this when…
