How to get a watertight multifunction screen

This year, before the summer season started, we had a client with a funny problem, and we solved it in a funny way.

The boat, a less-than-12-meter Dufour, had a default multifunction screen installed at the cockpit, used to control the equipment on board. As it happens from time to time, during the first year the […]

Installation of electronic equipment on a 25 m sloop

Every boat, and every owner, are a world in themselves. That is why each and every project requires custom solutions. This clearly happened to us a few years ago, with a 82′ (25 m) sloop, built in 2001 to a classic look. The owner wanted a secondary radar and data display, in the galley!, as […]

Installation of electronic equipment on a IMS 500 racing yacht

Racing sailboats have very specific needs; for their electronics equipment as well, depending on what kind of race they are involved in. With this idea in our minds, we equipped the legendary IMS 500 Azur de Puig.

Azur de Puig’s grand prix racing program demanded maximum input of information, excellent precision and minimum weight with superior […]

Installation of electronic equipment on a 54 m superyacht

In March and April we have been working in a 54 m, built in 2006 at the Turkish shipyard Turquoise Yachts. This yacht is in Barcelona to carry out an extensive refit, and at Medenisa we have taken care, obviously, of the electronics.

For this project we have carried out several tests to electronic equipment on […]

AIS for yachts: what they are, how they work

We all know what an AIS is: an Automatic Identification System which sends a signal that “labels” the ship, showing data such as name, IMO number, port of departure and of arrival, even a picture… Nowadays there are a lot of webs where you can track, through their AIS signal, the routes of ships throughout […]

Overhauling and test of electronic equipment

During a few days we have been working on a 58 m Amels built in 2006. The project has been short and, in principle, not quite glamorous; but it’s a necessary job that is too often overlooked: overhauling and testing of the electronic equipment on board.

Before the summer season begins (when the boat will be […]

Installation of the first Garmin 22″ and 24″ touchscreens

A few days ago we wrote how we had installed, back in October 2008, a Garmin 15” touchscreen, the very first in Spain. Fast forward 7 years and we increase by 7 inches: yes, we are installing the brand new 22″ and 24″ touchscreens from Garmin; again, the very first ones in Spain.

We are working […]

Installation of an inverter on a 9 m sailboat

Miguel is a retired man who decided he wanted to enjoy his well earned free time. Playing petanque at the park? Checking construction works in progress around the quarter? Playing dominoes at the bar? No, he bought a boat. Specifically a Dufour 310: a nice sailing boat slightly over 9 meters, with fine lines, modern […]

Installation of the first Garmin 15” touchscreen, October 2008

In October 2008, MEDENISA ordered and installed a Garmin 15” touchscreen, the very first to be installed in Spain.

It was the very first GPS-plotter, model Garmin GPSMap 5015, a multifunction touchscreen multiuse of 15 inches (diagonal). Back in 2008, that model was the most advanced GPS-plotter that the mapping company was producing, boasting the biggest […]

Full refit of a 38 m ketch

In the port of Barcelona, you can often see a 38,5 meters long ketch, designed by Diana Yacht Design and built in 1991 at the Dutch shipyard Scheepswerf Friesland. In 2002 she was bought by a well known Spanish owner, who decided to carry out an extensive refit which lasted two years.

This refit was carried […]
