SIMARINE NEREIDE Smart Power Panel was the winner of the ‘marine electronics & marine related software’ category at METSTRADE 2017. SIMARINE NEREIDE takes marine electrical distribution panels to another level. NEREIDE is easy to operate, complements the yacht’s interior instead of ruining it and provides the user with all the benefits of smartphone connectivity while preserving the reliability of analog panels. Optional multiple batteries & tanks monitoring and a digital pictogram, make it a truly unique solution.
Batteries have always been an important issue for all boat lovers and sailors. In addition to their main function as an energy source to start the engines, batteries run a host of and have to feed all those cool electronic onboard appliances and all sorts of apps.
Batteries are a triumph of science. They allow many cool appliances like smart phones or GPS navigation to exist without being helplessly wired to power cables. Yet even the best batteries slowly lose their capacity until they finally die. Why do batteries die and how can they even store so much energy in the first place?
We all have serious need for electricity onboard and a good working battery is one of the most important crew members. It’s not encouraging, yet it’s a fact: batteries degrade over time. At some point, you shall be looking forward to buying a new one.
Have you ever had the feeling you are buried in information on how batteries work, some of which is conflicting? What should you really do to increase battery lifespan? Which battery dos and don’ts should be remembered?
Many (if not most) boat owners face the problem of keeping the batteries charged. If you want your battery serves you for a longer period of time, you should ensure it is fully charged prior to using it. Half charging will shorten its life cycle and spoil your sunny days out in the ocean.
Not understanding your boat batteries can be an expensive and chronic problem. Batteries could also be a real party breaker. Most of us have experienced this scenario: the wind is just right, the sky is perfectly clear and the boat is prepared to sail away to new adventures. Just before grabbing our favourite sailing shoes and hitting the docks we check the battery bank.
We all love to get out on the water and disconnect, but probably we still have a soft spot in our hearts for the apps. It’s amazing how many useful applications you can store on your smartphone or tablet and there are some really cool apps that can make life afloat easier.
Boat batteries are pricey items and it’s worth investing in appropriate technology to get the best possible performance out of them. Nothing illustrates this point better than the dull click of a flat battery when you try to start your engine or a GPS that stops working in the middle of the ocean. While an empty battery on a boat is somewhere between inconvenient and outright dangerous, our work to prolong their life starts way before.

Protection of Ships Hulls against Fouling The English expression fouling – the overgrowing of the hull – can be defined as the undesirable accumulation of microorganisms, plants, algae or animals on the wetted surfaces of the vessel’s hull. The most common are: Barnacles Seaweed Molluscs The monitoring of fouling on the hull offers, in other words, a solution to the problem of the adhesion of marine organisms to the vessel’s hull that happens through the following stages:

SIMARINE is WINNER of the DAME Award in Category: “Marine electronics & marine related software” with our product SIMARINE NEREIDE Smart Power Panel. Simarine team is proud and happy to announce that our latest product SIMARINE NEREIDE Smart Power Panel won the Design Award of the METS 2017 in category Marine electronics & marine related software with the product.The DAME (Design at METSTRADE) Award is the largest marine competition of its kind, anywhere in the world. The theory of crowding oilers an explanation for why wages in traditionally female-dominated occupations (like early education and care)tended to be low historically. If women were historically excluded from most professions and trades, then the fact that they were crowded into relatively few occupations would tend to drive the wage downwards. This explanation from this site for low wages for early education and care may have some plausibility, but becomes less convincing as time goes on and women are increasingly aware of, and allowed into, opportunities formerly reserved for males, and as males enter traditionally female occupations. It focuses attention on the art and science of design in all aspects, from styling, functionality, and innovation, through to ease of implementation, practicality of use.
The DAME Design Award is the largest marine competition of its kind, anywhere in the world. It focuses attention on the art and science of design in all aspects, from styling, functionality, and innovation, through to ease of implementation, practicality of use – and even packaging. Now in its 27th year, METSTRADE has continued to support and build this competition to highlight the critical role of design in retaining today’s boat buyers and attracting the next generation.
Ultimately there was very little separating the top two sailors with their radically different temperaments and track records at the end of this first leg. The former had the status of defender in this race and was constantly calling himself into question regarding his position within the Mini fleet. The second had decided to consider this race as a journey of self-discovery with nothing to lose enjoying what he can come to the circuit to search for.
La Rochelle – Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (Spain) – Le Marin (Martinique) : 4050 single-handed NM race. The 81 boats will be in La Rochelle, Bassin des Chalutiers from September 20th to October 1st. Start on Sunday, October 1st. To follow the race, see the pictures and know everything about the Mini-Transat La Boulangère :
Jugo is a warm and humid south-easterly wind blowing from south-south-east (S-SE) to east-south-east (E-SE). It is typically accompanied by rain as well as storms. It blows along the whole Adriatic coast, and is the strongest in the southern part causing the largest waves in the Adriatic Sea. During the summer time jugo blows with the speed of 4-5Bf (16-20kn) while in winter it can reach the speed up to 7-8Bf (27-40kn). Jugo is stronger on the open sea.
SIMARINE NEREIDE is truly unique. Its made entirely of high-quality anodized aluminum and gorilla glass and dims at night. But it’s not merely a designer improvement over the existing distribution panels in the marine industry, it’s a technical beauty on the inside as well.
While this boat’s main battery bank is at 73% state of charge (SOC) — a near minimum for some lead acid owners intent on long term battery health — the lightning icon and blue up-arrow indicate that the charging sources exceed the loads and, in fact, a 100% SOC is expected in 9.5 hours at current rates. The 3.5-inch touchscreen is also displaying time and barometric pressure with trend, and this is just the sleep screen of what seems to be a very modern family of reasonable-cost monitoring products. Say hello to Simarine…
Lead acid batteries are still most widely used among boat and recreational vehicle (RV) owners because of their good performance, widespread availability and being relatively safe. With a low self-discharge, high specific power, well low and high-temperature performance, as well as a reasonable price tag will likely continue to be the common battery of choice for many years to come.
Bora, Jugo – Sirocco, Jugo – Ostro, Tramuntana, Maestro, Burin, Pulent, Levanter, Libeccio BORA Bora is the most typical wind of the eastern Adriatic coast and is usually a sign of pleasant weather conditions. It is a dry and cold wind blowing from the north-eastern quadrant. The direction from which it blows can differ and is not always the same. It can blow from the north – north-eastern (NNE) as well as from the east – north-eastern (ENE) direction.
