We are all fans of the one stop right? Well the guys behind superyacht apps YACHTNEEDS and YACHTCHAT have waived their technical magic wand and combined both apps into one totally comprehensive superyacht hub.
Made by crew for crew, YACHTNEEDS superyacht services app and social sister app YACHTCHAT have already made their mark in the industry since officially launching at the beginning of this year. In just five months the apps have been used by 18% of the people employed in the yachting industry, and now get over 6000 daily visits!
As of today users can update YACHTNEEDS, go to the CHAT and find the social side of YACHTCHAT where you can chat live with other yacht crew, find day work in your local area and find out about crew parties and events wherever you are. In the very same app you can also go to the MAPS and find geo-positioned suppliers and services for literally anything you might need. From local taxis, directions to the shop and transport links; to contacts for the finest provisioners, chandlers and guest experiences out there.
The new combined app has had a facelift and is sleeker, sexier and the search function has gone supersonic…. So supersonic you can even use voice recognition (great if you don’t know how to spell something!). You can search for ports, businesses, categories and individual keywords, so if you need to know the best restaurant in your next port of call you are just a quick search away.
More great news for Android users because the new YACHTNEEDS is also available through Google Play stores and can be downloaded via this link.
iPhone users can use this link
It’s the little things that really make a difference and improvements such as logging in via Facebook, being able to turn the chat function on or off, easy links to all the social media platforms for each supplier or service and the new deals button in every port really do make the app worth using on a daily basis for crew.
Where else could you search for the port you are in or the next one you will be visiting and find all the discounts, deals and special offers companies have on for superyacht crew and guests.
Basically this app will improve your social life and save you hours and hours of googling.
Double thumbs up if you ask us.
