Your marina needs DIRECTV and Internet!

If you’re a marina owner, you owe it to your tenants to look at DIRECTV satellite. If you’re there right now, take a look. How many boats are sitting in their slips? I know, I know, they whole point of having a boat is going out whenever you want. But how much of a boat’s life is spent at the marina? How much time is spent by a boat owner in that boat while it’s sitting not far from shore?

More than just “a parking lot”

You take pride in your marina. You know that it’s more than just a place to park a boat in between journeys. People expect… a little extra. A luxury yacht owner expects the amenities from a marina that they get from other parts of their lives. And it’s up to you, the marina owner, to provide them. If you really want to cater to those upscale customers, you know you have to.

Life on the water doesn’t mean leaving life behind.

There was a time when “getting away from it all” really meant just that. Go out on the water and leave your worries on shore. The only point of contact was the radio. Your only responsibility was to sit back and enjoy the sunshine. Oh, how nice those days must have been.

That’s just not the world we live in, folks. Our phones are constant links to the outside world. We want to be entertained with live sports and we want to know what’s going on. We need to be connected, these days, and that doesn’t change one bit while we’re on the water.

Boat owners may choose to outfit themselves with mobile satellite and internet systems, but that doesn’t mean you’re off the hook to try to provide a great experience while that boat’s in the slip.

Signal Connect has your solutions.

No one does more marine electronics business than Signal Connect. For two decades, we’ve stood behind our commitment to providing the best electronic life to those offshore. That doesn’t just mean people a mile offshore, either. We’re here to help you, the marina owner, even if you’re just a few feet offshore.

DIRECTV headend systems for marinas

With a headend system, you provide a selected number of channels over a system that’s easy to extend and upgrade. It’s like being your own cable company. You pick what channels to carry and the equipment sits on site in your office. Unlike traditional DIRECTV systems, your customers don’t need expensive receivers or dishes. You run a cable to the slip and all they need to do is connect a TV to the other end. Maintenance and upgrades are super easy with simple splitters. You have the power to control how and what you offer to the boats in your marina.

Wi-Fi and internet solutions

Signal Connect can create a custom system to blanket the marina with Wi-Fi. We do the hard work, and you control how people can access it. With our solutions, you can decide whether it’s an open or closed system. You can even choose to control how much speed you provide. It can take a very “fat pipe” to give streaming service to all the boats in the marina at the same time. If you choose to invest in your internet, a solution from Signal Connect can deliver it everywhere. If all you want to offer is basic Wi-Fi, not enough for HD or 4K streaming, we can help you there too.
