A total of over 1.1 million views globally in the last 12 months makes YACHTNEEDS an app worthy for crew to have on their phones. With their 18,000+ active users YACHTNEEDS established that crew don’t have the time or space in their phones for lots of different apps. They like that YACHTNEEDS has everything in one platform and that the app is ‘made by crew, for crew’.


Currently, YACHTNEEDS has three main functions:


We are proud to announce we have a new office. The Bond IT Team has outgrown its former Amsterdam office and has relocated to a modern building twenty minutes from our former location. 


Floor to ceiling windows bring in natural light and an open plan facilitates communication and creativity for our engineers and team. The new facility also has its own testing environment, data house, boardroom and training classroom. This will also serve as the location of Bond’s IT and AV systems training for Superyacht Crew.


Thanks to One Ocean Port Vell and MB92 for helping us spread the word about our Maritime Cyber Risk Awareness courses. In conjunction with Maritime Cyber Solutions,  Bobd TM ran two successful courses on the 15th and 16th of October in the Clock House Building inside MB92 Shipyard.  


Even if you are no fan of on board climate control there is a need for everyone on board to have a basic understanding of HVAC.  Frances and Michael Howorth explain why

Synergy is a newly formed HVAC systems and energy management company,headquartered in Amsterdam.  Headed up by Patrick Voorn, an HVAC consultant with over 15 years in the maritime and offshore industry, it forms part of the Bond TM Group. Here we catch up with Voorn on the importance of independent integrators, and what changes are required within the yachting industry to move the HVAC sector forward.




Bond TM and EDGE YACHTS invite you to join us in MB92 at the South Entrance for our annual BBQ.  Not only will we enjoy delicious food and music, but this year we are adding educational talks in our offices before the BBQ begins. It's a chance to get to know each other and discuss pressing issues in the yachting industry.  


Sending a huge 'Thank You' to our fellow sponsors, Edge Yachts and Riviera Wines, and to MB92 and Port Vell crew for an extremely entertaining Autumn BBQ!

From the tasty tacos to the cold beverages and ‘Pin the Tail on the Donkey’, a great time was had by all.  The winner took home a magnum of Rosé courtesy of Riviera Wines, a Bond TM quick-dry baseball cap and an Edge workout arm band. 

We look forward to seeing you all at the next one!
