Super Yacht Kathleen Anne upgrades to MOTOTRBO™ digital two-way radios
The 127.95ft / 39m SL39 ‘KATHLEEN ANNE’ was built in 2009 by Feadship. It is capable of carrying up to 8 crew on board and sleeping up to 10 guests. Timeless styling, and beautiful furnishings feature throughout her living areas creating an elegant and comfortable atmosphere, ensuring a relaxed luxury yacht experience.
Working with the Motorola GP344 analogue two way radio since the yachts launch Captain, Ben Taylor felt it was a natural progression to move to a MOTOTRBO™ digital two way radio when the GP344 ceased production. After reviewing a number of compact portables the crew decided upon the MOTOTRBO™ SL1600 digital hand portable radio. With its sleek, curved edges and rugged frame the MOTOTRBO™ SL1600 is the perfect on board communications partner that can be easily carried in a pocket without snagging, or bulging. The Shatterproof Active View display uses hidden LED lighting to communicate channel, radio, and volume information crisply in both daytime and night-time situations.
Captain, Ben Taylor commented “The MOTOTRBO SL1600 has streamlined our communications, and made messages clear and quiet allowing us to operate discretely on board”.
