VesselVanguard was born of one boat owner's experience, then informed and enhanced by the input of countless others before launching as the world's first cloud-based maintenance management solution. Headed by one of the industry's most experienced leadership teams, the company continues to innovate and evolve to best serve the needs of our thousands of members across recreational, commercial and military sectors.
VesselVanguard was conceived and created by Don Hyde, an experienced sailor and technology entrepreneur. As the owner of an Island Packet 485, Don experienced the frustrations of assimilating the full range of details buried within the pages of 35 pounds of manuals in order to maintain his boat at the peak of performance and functionality. The design for this simple yet innovative service results from exhaustive interviews with owners, manufacturers, dealers, brokers and service personnel. The increasing complexity and sophistication of today's boats requires greater adherence to the manufacturer's suggested maintenance schedules. VesselVanguard makes this entire process simple and assures optimum performance both on the water and at the dock.
Our mission is to fill in the knowledge gap so that boaters approach each on-water experience with confidence and control. VesselVanguard enables the boat-owner to enhance their stewardship of the boat while also preserving its value.
The systems designed into a boat by an imaginative boat maker, and choices later made by an owner, are intended to function together to create a safe and comfortable on-board environment. VesselVanguard understands this and its purpose is to decrease the complexity of understanding and maintaining all these systems. This level of acute care delivers the most important and indefinable reality to the boat-owner: peace of mind and more time on the water.
The leadership at VesselVanguard brings decades of experience, acheivement and thought leadership that guide the company’s direction:
