Our Boatbuilder Partners
We’re extremely proud that so many top brands in our industry have opted to provide a VesselVanguard subscription to help owners easily manage the service and inspection needs of their new boats. These builders take extra steps to enhance the ownership experience for each new buyer, and appreciate how VesselVanguard plays a vital role in their customer care efforts:
With all the sophisticated systems and technologies on board pleasurecraft today, it’s not unusual for owners to receive 30, 40 or more pounds of print manuals along with their boat. Reading through them all in your leisure time is an unmanageable expectation—and trying to find the information you need in an urgent situation can be close to impossible. Fortunately, VesselVanguard gives you an online library of your boat and equipment manuals, all in digital format. Read them on your iPad or tablet, smartphone or PC, or jump right to the section you need: most manuals are easily searchable with today’s generation of PDF readers.
Get an at-a-glance look at the maintenance status of your boat—then click to schedule and assign upcoming service, defer tasks to a later date, get instructions and diagrams from manuals, find how-to advice or print a report.
The average midsize boat can have 150 or more service and inspection tasks required each year to maintain warranty coverage and proper operation. We compile them all and alert you in advance of their due dates.
We provide a secure, backup-protected site to upload and store service-related documents—work orders, receipts, photos, emails and more—all categorized and easy to access from anywhere. A great asset when it comes time to sell!

VesselVanguard Earns Boating Industry's 2014 "Top Product" Award
Step 1: Sign Up to Start
Select the program that fits your boat and sign up using our online form. We’ll email you or your dealer an equipment list form to fill out and return. If you just bought your boat, your broker or dealer may be able to help with this or send the information to us for you.
Step 2: We Build Your Profile
Sit back and relax! Based on this information, VesselVanguard will create your online Boat Profile—including a library of digital manuals for your boat and its equipment, plus a calendar of all required maintenance, inspection schedules, warranties and other information to manage your boat’s maintenance needs.
Step 3: Set Preferences and Go!
Log in to your VesselVanguard account to use the many online tools. Easily add aftermarket equipment and we’ll update your profile with manuals and maintenance schedules. Set notification preferences, assign contractors to receive your tasks alerts, and enjoy our many other features and resources.
Our best salespeople are the many indiciduals and families across the world who use VesselVanguard to improve their own boat ownership experience. Here’s what some of them have to say about our solution:
Designed to meet the on-the-go needs and online routines of today’s active boater, our cloud-based service lets you view, manage and share information about your boat’s maintenance online when and where you need it. Receive service notices to you mobile phone, look up a boat manual on your tablet device, upload service records from your laptop—whether you’re at the office, in the coffee shop or at the helm of your boat, you can easily interface with your online boat profile from anywhere you can get online. You can even sync and download files to your device for access when you’re far from a wifi or mobile signal.
Warranty and Insurance Savings
Our motto, "Always on Watch," reflects the level of diligence that marine insurers and underwriters value in a boat owner. As a result, VesselVanguard subscribers have the opportunity to save significantly on the cost of protecting their investments. The VesselVangaurd Advantage Warranty, avalailable exclusively to our members, provides comprehensive coverage for boats up to ten years old—often at a savings of 20 to 40% compared to similar marine warranty programs.
In addition, VesselVanguard subscribers may enjoy significant discounts of their boat insurance premiums. Some owners have saved as much as 20% per year—far more than the cost of a VesselVanguard subscription. Please inquire with your marine insurance provider about a reduction to your insurance premium, or click here for a partial list of insurers who typically offer such discounts.
Delegate with Control and Confidence
Delegating individual service tasks—or even the complete maintenance of your boat— to others is a key feature of VesselVanguard. You can easily assign a preferred contractor to receive copies of specific task alerts; allow your favorite boatyard to oversee the maintenance and inspection of entire systems; or even give your trusted service agent complete access to view and manage all the various needs for you boat. Designated parties get access to only the systems you assign to them, with the ability to upload completed work orders and documents which then become part of the Digital Ship's Log.
VesselVanguard is in demand by many owners, captains and maintenance officers for use aboard large vessels—from 70-foot fishing boats to 180-foot megayachts and beyond. For these customers we created our Platinum Level service: all the power of VesselVanguard with the full capacity to manage a higher number of more complex systems, plus more custom-generated maintenance schedules. Click here for more information.
"An owner who is kept informed of what needs attention on a boat will take care of it better. VesselVanguard works within the framework of how boat owners—and all busy, accomplished people in today's world—receive and process information effectively: through their personal electronic devices, specifically through e-mail task alerts. VesselVanguard doesn't maintain a boat—after all, only the owner can really do that. But this cloud-based system gets to the heart of the matter and helps to maintain the owner."
