Inmarsat has appointed experienced maritime communications technical specialist and cybersecurity expert Peter Broadhurst as its new Senior VP, Yachting and Passenger.

The appointment comes as the mobile satellite communications company continues to expand its presence in the small cruise, superyacht and leisure yachting sectors.

Broadhurst will continue in his role as Senior Vice President of Safety and Security at Inmarsat Maritime, where he has defined the strategy, development and evolution of Inmarsat’s satellite communication services for maritime safety, navigation, safety of life at sea and data security, and successfully directed the initiation and delivery of Fleet Safety and Fleet Secure.

He said: “Having been involved in the superyacht and passenger sector for over 15 years previously, I am keen to drive forward the full portfolio of Inmarsat solutions for a variety of leisure yachts, boats, and ferries, as well as the speciality cruise sector, at a time when demand for on-board connectivity is growing. We will continue to extend our network of partners, work with superyacht captains and operators, and conduct in-depth research such as our annual Superyacht Connectivity Report to enable fast industry transition to high-speed connectivity and strengthen our position as the driving force in the global maritime sector for connectivity at sea.”

Benefits of Fleet Xpress include affordable voice calls, multiple voice options for crew and operations, and high-speed broadband for internet access, plus 24/7 online support by certified engineers.
