Anschütz gets close to 200 megayacht integrated bridge systems

State-of-the-art navigation technology boosts integrated bridge systems.

The number of integrated bridge systems (IBS) for megayachts delivered by Anschütz continues to increase. Over the coming months, Anschütz will contract the 200th megayacht bridge. In addition to new builds, the modernisation of megayachts is also boosting demand. By updating and upgrading bridge systems to the latest technologies, megayacht customers can rely on safe, comfortable and sustainable navigation.

“We are excited to see when the time comes and we will deliver the 200th Anschütz bridge system for megayachts”, said Philip Kankelfitz, Head of the business unit for Integrated Bridge Systems. “For us, this success brings with it the obligation to expand our offering on this market and to make our technology even more sustainable and better.”

The Synapsis NX integrated navigation system is effectively the operating system of the Anschütz bridge systems. This latest generation of the navigation system optimises the performance of the bridge and makes operation more convenient, efficient and smart.

AI-like features ensure consistent and validated data at each workstation, as well as an alert handling throughout the system. Multifunctional workstations deliver an upmost in situational awareness and offer full control over navigation and the steering system. Last but not least, all applications come with modern, intuitive user interfaces and advanced features beyond IMO standards to support important use cases, such as tender tracking or docking.

Synapsis NX uses standardised marine computers and an embedded software framework that serves as an integration platform for all sensors and systems on board. Modular software applications define the functional scope of a workstation. This simplifies both the replacement of system components as well as regular software updates for new functions and continuous compliance. As a standardised, fully scalable and easily configurable system, Synapsis NX is ideal for system integrators and shipyards.

"The fact that we have now been among the market leaders for megayachts for a long time and have been able to work with the most prestigious shipyards and the most magnificent yachts makes us proud and underlines the performance of our technology and, above all, our team in engineering, project management and customer service", said Kankelfitz.

Anschütz sold its 100th superyacht IBS to the first Limited Editions Amels 188 in 2015 and since then has continued to expand its business with many of the world's leading megayacht shipyards and the world's best integrators.
