MY Slipstream & MY Cloud 9 – Two 60m CMN New Builds

Livewire Connections has recently completed the installation of two new IT and Communications management systems aboard MY Slipstream & MY Cloud 9, two brand new 60M mega yachts built by CMN in France. Both vessels have entered service this season and Livewire Connections provided the complete IT system including Servers, desktop PCs, Laptops, a fully managed Wi-Fi system throughout the vessel, email, electronic newspapers and all off vessel comms.

Livewire was able to provide a turnkey solution for the yachts, which includes ongoing IT support and airtime service provision for the VSAT service, Inmarsat communications, which are all controlled via a new state of the art Access Controller FB-10 system, which is designed to simplify the management and control of all off vessel communications.

David Walker, Sales Director for Livewire Connections Ltd said that the projects came at short notice and we were very pleased to have completed the installations on time for the Captain and owners and it is great to see these fabulous new yachts entering service. We wish the two Captains and crew an excellent season.

M/Y Slipstream Captain Phil Stephens describes the experience of working with Livewire Connections…

"I was introduced to Livewire fairly late in the build of Slipstream and having no clear direction where the IT / Comms system needed to go at this stage the decision soon became an easy one.

Livewire gave me numerous options as to what would be available for the yacht with regards our cruising program and owner / charter requirements and having compared these to the market I felt that Livewire were in it for the duration, rather than just the short term installation which was in my opinion vital to a new yacht.

Having experienced their on site approach and prior to this their time management with the yacht and the yard I felt comfortable that almost all of the time on board for installation was utilised to the optimum.

Where the system may have fallen short before their involvement, their advice and understanding of our needs were pitched perfectly and I am confident that we departed the yard with a very good basis with which to go forward.

The few ’teething’ issues that we have experienced have all been dealt with expediently and their after sales tech service was also another good investment from the yacht.

I can see a long relationship forming between Slipstream and Livewire if the past year has been any indication."
