Boat Anti-Theft Systems

Posted by SkiSafe         0

An anti-theft system will alert you when suspicious activity is occurring on the boat. Smartphones and sophisticated apps have simplified monitoring a boat’s security. If a sensor is triggered, the anti-theft system will automatically send an alert to your smartphone or tablet.   

Some systems are also able to respond to a possible theft with an audible alarm, disabling the battery, or recording video through an onboard camera. Critical boat systems, such as bilge pumps, battery levels, and high-water pumps, can also be monitored. Overall, a GPS-tracking, anti-theft system is a valuable investment to prevent theft of the watercraft. 


Here are some of the anti-theft systems available: 


Another option is Spot Trace, an advanced theft-alert tracking system. SPOT detects motion from vibration sensors and will notify the boater via text or email of real-time GPS coordinates. The device also sends asset status updates in either 2.5, 5, 10, 30, or 60-minute intervals, regardless of movement, to ensure the boat is where you left it.  


  • Motion-detection text and email notifications 

  • Top-notch satellite technology  

  • GPS tracking via google maps 

  • Long battery life 

  • 2.5, 5, 10, 20, or 60-minute tracking intervals  



Gost Global has built a security system that is designed to give your watercraft total protection, featuring high-definition video surveillance and satellite-based GPS tracking. There are interactive keypads installed throughout the vessel that can be controlled from a smartphone or tablet. GOST can accommodate up to 16 touch-screen units and 192 wireless and/or hardwired sensors.  

The GOST security system has several features meant to ward off intruders. First, there is a DNA security fog that deposits a unique, location-specific DNA marker on skin, clothing, and stolen items. Second, an alarm will go off if the system is triggered and a response team will be notified. In addition, there are a wide-array of sensors, including wireless motion detectors, smoke detectors, door and window contacts, temperature sensors, pressure sensors, water sensors, and low-voltage sensors available for installation.  


  • Video surveillance 

  • Satellite-based GPS tracking 

  • 192 available sensors  

  • Wireless sensors 

  • Key fob remote  

  • Total control from any mobile device 

  • Anti-theft DNA security fog 

  • GOST acoustic sound barrier 




Siren Marine is specifically designed for boat safety and security, offering boat monitoring capabilities from a smartphone or tablet. This system gives information in real-time, including GPS tracking and geofence, temperature alerts, motion sensors, shore power, bilge and high-water alerts, battery monitoring, and engine metrics.  


  • GPS tracking and geofence  

  • Critical event alerts and reports 

  • Ability to control onboard devices via the siren marine app 

  • Ability to monitor multiple boats 

  • Arm/disarm options 

  • Engine metrics 

  • Bilge and temperate alerts 

  • Battery monitoring  

Securing your watercraft with an appropriately configured and installed anti-theft system is a prudent way to prevent theft. GOST, SPOT, and Siren Marine are some of the options that you may want to consider in order to track your boat, give you real-time updates on the status of your craft, and hopefully guard against the theft of your boat or its valuable equipment.
