Ocean Independence signs partnership with Excelerate Marine


Superyacht brokerage Ocean Independence has formed a partnership with Excelerate Marine. The connectivity service provider will now deliver its products and services to Ocean Independence’s clients, captains, and crew at exclusive partnership pricing.

The collaboration will allow Ocean Independence’s clients use to Excelerate’s hardware and support capability for new builds, refits, and upgrades, in addition to its internet network.

Toby Maclaurin, sales director, Ocean Independence, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Excelerate Marine as our preferred technology and connectivity partner. Anyone we work with and introduce to our valued customers must share the same ethos that we do.”

The two companies have collaborated in recent years already. Five years ago, Ocean Independence aided Excelerate’s purchase of its Sunseeker motor yacht, Excelerate Z (pictured below). The vessel has since become a research and development test vessel and a charter yacht managed by Ocean Independence.

“It soon became evident that Ocean Independence and Excelerate share the same values, so the fit is perfect,” said David Savage, CEO and founder, Excelerate. “We will be introduced as a preferred supplier to Ocean Independence’s clients, who will benefit from discounts upon everything we do or supply.”

As a full-service connectivity provider, Excelerate Marine’s portfolio also consists of hardware solutions that cover new builds and refits and security systems.

Maclaurin said: “For us, it’s about working with the right people and giving our yacht owners, captains, crew, and charter guests the best experience possible. We believe Excelerate Marine provides just that.”
