Lifecord is a newly designed kill cord providing the certainty and reliability of a tethered connection between a boat’s engine ignition kill switch and pilot, ensuring the vessel’s engine stops should the pilot be inadvertently thrown from the helm. However, unlike the typical passive kill cords commonly seen, Lifecord is a ‘smart’ kill cord incorporating detection technology designed to trigger an audible and visual warning alarm should Lifecord be connected to the boat’s kill switch but not the pilot, similar to the seat belt warning in your car.
The Large Yacht Brokers Association (LYBRA) has revealed plans for a new superyacht show with a “fresh, unique and appealing format”.
THE SUPERYACHT SHOW will take place from 2nd to 5th May 2018 at OneOcean Port Vell in Barcelona. According to organisers, it will offer buyers, charterers, brokers and representatives the opportunity to step aboard some of the finest superyachts in the world in an “exclusive and private setting”.
November. Now where did that go? Ah yes I remember – it vanished in something of a whirl. From one training event and seminar to another. Hugely rewarding for me personally though I have to say and I was delighted to meet so many members, both at the UK events and at the UAE Branch Conference over the course of the month. I have learnt a great deal, which for a highly non-technical person such as me is probably a dangerous thing! However, it occurred to me that if I did, then so did our members too. Certainly the positive feedback would suggest that to be the case.
