Yamaha and Siren Marine Announce New Siren Connected Boat Mobile App

Posted 1/25/2024

KENNESAW, Ga., January 25, 2024 — Yamaha and Siren Marine announced today the new Siren Connected Boat mobile app backed by a robust marine IoT ecosystem featuring integration with Yamaha outboards and control systems. The app has the ability to personalize the boating experience for customers, combining the branded look of their boat builder with specific information curated especially for them.

“Through Siren Connected Boat, Yamaha and Siren offer never-before-seen innovation and benefits that allow boat owners to ‘be’ on board their boat even when they can’t be in person,” said Andrew Cullen, Director, Connectivity, Yamaha U.S. Marine Business Unit. “The app is designed to put everything a customer needs to know about his or her boat at their fingertips. It also gives them the ability to leverage Siren technology and all the benefits of remote connectivity, security and monitoring.”

Siren Connected Boat combines real-time vessel security, multiple and flexible boat monitoring and tracking functions, and convenience features including remote digital switching. Through the mobile app, customers have access to and the ability to control all of these features from their smartphones or smart watches.

In addition, Siren can now integrate with Yamaha’s Command Link Plus® protocol which enables the Siren Connected Boat to automatically remind boaters and their preferred dealers about scheduled maintenance requirements and due dates based on actual engine use. It also contains all maintenance records for the boat, updated by either the servicing dealer or the DIY boater. With the help of a new low power mode, customers can extend their battery life during times when full functionality is not needed (such as winterization) or when boat power availability is limited.

The new Siren Connected Boat mobile app will be available for download in the U.S. on February 15, 2024. It comes in a basic free tier as well as premium tier that requires installation and activation of a Siren 3 Pro main device and cellular service. Siren 3 Pro system hardware starts at $797, and cellular as low as $18.75/month.

Dealers have the ability to install Siren 3 Pro devices on site. In addition, select boat builders now offer Siren 3 Pro as standard equipment on select 2024 model year boats. Currently, those boat builders include Grady-White®, Regulator® Marine, SunCatcher® by G3® and Skeeter®.  Additional builders offering Siren 3 Pro as a standard feature will be announced soon.

Siren 3 Pro is a third-generation remote boat monitoring and telematics platform leading the future of the Connected Boat technology. The Siren 3 Pro operates over a global 4G/5G LTE cellular network with the option to add SirenSat, an offshore antenna for customers that leave cellular coverage. Options for sensors include wired and wireless as well as connection to the NMEA 2000® network.
