All marine vessels use either one of the following two types of 3G, 4G, LTE Signal Boosters:
3G 4G LTE Marine Signal Booster with Panel Antenna.
Also used in RVs, the Panel antenna added to this kit provides large swath of boosted area inside marine vessels. Visit link above for more details.
3G 4G LTE Marine Signal Booster with Desktop Antenna.
Also used in RVs, the Desktop antenna within this kit provides small desktop area with boosted signals inside marine vessels. Visit link above for more details.
Single or multiple units of any of the two above marine vessel signal boosters can be used if more areas or larger area coverage is needed inside marine vessels. After purchase, DIY installation is easy with provided instructions in the user guide & manual. After installing signal booster system, enjoy strengthened strong cellular signals for cell phones, tablets, mobile hotspots and similar devices inside boats, cargo ships, yachts, tugboats, barges, oil tankers, cruise liners, etc. Most of us know what a boat or ship is, so let us clarify for others the meanings and compare differences between Yachts, Tugboats, and Barges first:
A tug (tugboat) is a boat or ship that maneuvers marine vessels by towing or pushing them. Tugs move marine vessels such as ships in a crowded harbor or a narrow canal, and barges, disabled ships, or oil platforms. Tugboats are very powerful considering their size. They are built using a very strong framework for maximum stability. Some are designed specifically for operating on deep seas and wide oceans thousands of miles offshore. Tugboats can also serve as icebreakers and boats for oceanic salvage. Older tugboats have steam engines, but most tug-boats today have powerful diesel engines. Some tugboats are designed to assist in firefighting in marinas (a specially designed harbor with moorings for pleasure craft and small boats). Therefore, they have firefighting monitors equipped in such tug boats.
A barge is essentially a flat-bottomed boat. It is built mainly for transportation of heavy goods and equipment on rivers and canals. Some barges must be towed or pushed by towboats or canal barges because they are not self-propelled. Barges competed with the railway many decades ago, but railways are now preferred for carriage of high-value items due to their higher speed, lower cost, and flexibility of choosing the route to destination.
A yacht is a recreational boat or ship. It originally meant a light, fast sailing vessel for use around and into the shallow waters. Its meaning now mainly differs from working ships by its purpose - Leisure travel. Two different classes of yachts are: Sailing and power boats. With popularity of the steamboats and other types of powerboats, sailing vessels are perceived as luxury, or recreational marine vessels. Now the term encompasses mainly private pleasure purpose large motor boats as well. The Yacht length is typically 33 feet up to hundreds of feet. A cabin cruiser is a luxury craft that is smaller than 39 feet. A Superyacht generally refers to any sail or power yacht longer than 79 feet. Any yacht over 164 feet is referred to, as a Megayacht. Cruise liner and oil tanker lengths are much larger than these.
You know how it is like to be on your boat or yacht. It is just you and the water. There's nothing that comes close to the feeling you get when you're out on your own in the sea on your boat or yacht. You feel at home, relaxed and happy. But... things could go wrong very easily. Imagine you're on your boat or yacht and get a call from your wife. She sounds stressed about something and just when she is about to tell you what happened, the call disconnects - you get another of those dropped calls, which happens all the time when you're out on your boat or yacht. You wonder if everything is alright at home. Are the kids fine? Was your wife trying to tell you something about your kids? Did they come back from school okay? Your mind starts to wander. Anxiously, you try to call your wife back, but with the cell phone signals being so weak, you cannot reach her at all. It is on occasions such as these that you wish you had a marine signal booster.
You have a weak cell phone reception because of a number of factors. The most important reason is the distance between your boat and the nearest cell tower. The farther you are, the harder it is for you to get strong maritime signals. The reception gets weaker and weaker the farther you get away from the nearest shore. That is why the number of dropped calls increases, and it becomes so difficult to receive emails or text messages. What's more, you have to deal with the problem of interference from the objects in the way, such as concrete structures, forests or mountains which impede the signals. When the weather is really bad and there are dark clouds in the sky, the cell phone reception gets affected as well.
A marine signal booster or a cell phone signal booster is capable of boosting the existing 3G and 4G LTE signals by up to 32 times. You will get access to much faster internet, you will be able to hold a conversation without the connection breaking down, you will be able to send out text messages and reply to emails quickly. Above listed marine cell phone boosters work for all types of phones- Android or iPhone. They work on all major US and Canadian carriers networks such AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Bell Canada, Telus Mobility and Verizon.
Let us quickly understand how a cell phone repeater works. It takes the existing signal, amplifies it, and rebroadcasts it into the boat or the yacht. This provides stronger enhanced 3G or 4G LTE signals. You don't have to search for the nearest cell tower. This device does this automatically for you. It picks up any signal that is available and improves it by thirty two times, and then makes the signal available to you over a specific area near the interior area based on the booster model you choose. You can then use your cell phone easily and receive and make calls without having to worry about any connectivity issues, even when you are on a boat or yacht and getting farther and farther away from the nearest shore.
