closecircle-app

Security concerns can be a big worry for many superyacht owners and, while personal bodyguards may be a good solution at home or on board, it's not always the most practical option for those who travel constantly. CloseCircle, a new app from the Drum Cussac Group, which promises corporate-level personal safety and security for private individuals and families. As well as optional tracking and touch-of-the-button SOS calls, the app will give you a full rundown of the potential risks at your destination before you leave, alert you to any hazards within a 50km radius, provide real-time event updates in more than 500 destinations and allow family members to see your last known position and vice versa. In addition CloseCircle's security experts are available 24 hours a day to provide proactive advice on a range of dangers or, if the worst should happen, help evacuate you from a situation or offer specialist support for kidnapping, wrongful detention, missions persons or extortion. Packages start from £195 annually for a single membership and go up to £3,500 for a six-person family membership.

Created by Van Berge Henegouwen specifically with superyacht owners in mind, Pivot is the first on board living technology system available on the Apple Watch. The app can be used by owners to call stewardesses and control on board entertainment, lights and temperature with customised presets available for each device so the wearer’s preferences can be met at the touch of a button. Pivot can also be used by crew to send messages and information to all staff instantly and discreetly without the use of a radio.
