But what is the connected boat and what does it mean for the future of the industry and boating as a whole? As technology and innovations continue to propel boats into the future, we at Boating Industry wanted to really dig into what the connected boat is, how it’s created and what it means to the industry. Over the next year, each issue of Boating Industry will feature a story digging into new aspects of the connected boat with the help of various industry experts.
