Low-cost onboard calling with global FleetPhone


FleetPhone is ideal for primary voice calls by smaller vessels such as tugs, coastal fishing boats and motor yachts.

It can also provide a reliable back-up for merchant ships, international fishing vessels and oil & gas rigs.

First terminals

FleetPhone also offers vessels the potential for lower-cost crew calling or a separate private line from the bridge.

In addition to high quality voice calls, the service supports SMS texts and has a 2.4kbps data service for sending plain text emails.
