AVON Marine Inflatables will be present at the 2016 Monaco Yacht Show to introduce a brand new boat dedicated to Luxury Yacht owners, the Avon Grand Tender 850.

The Avon Grand Tender 850 is the first boat to benefit from these digital innovations.
Leading the boating industry in the Internet of Things (IoT) movement, the Grand Tender 850 allows its owner to track the boat’s activity online and in real time (geolocation, average speed, engine use), and receive alerts in case of an intrusion, theft hazard or unauthorized use (Geofencing).
