FORT LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA (USA) – Bluewater fishing boat manufacturer Hydra-Sports will offer its models with security, monitoring & tracking systems from Global Ocean Security Technologies (GOST), formerly Paradox Marine.

Last year, MasterCraft Boats purchased the Hydra-Sports brand and moved production into one of the world’s most advanced boat manufacturing facilities, located in Vonore, Tennessee. The Hydra-Sports team has over 300 years of collective experience at such legendary brands as Boston Whaler, Triton, Hatteras, Hinckley, Chris Craft, Sea Ray, Wellcraft, Cobalt Yachts, Cruisers Yachts and Yamaha.

GOST products include the Nav-Tracker GPS Tracking System, Marine Magellan Insight Security, Monitoring & Surveillance System & the GOST Immobilizer.

When a Nav-Tracker transmitter is mounted discreetly on a boat and armed, a wireless ‘geo-fence’ with a 500-meter radius is created. If a boat is moved outside of this fence, Nav-Tracker uses Inmarsat based GPS satellite technology to monitor a boat’s location and notify up to ten people by email and/or text message every 15 minutes with the latitude/longitude, speed and heading.

The system’s optional sensors include door contacts, infrared beam sensors, deck pressure sensors and high water sensors. There is also an optional 130 decibel siren that can be added for extra protection.

The Marine Magellan Insight includes all the components necessary to help protect a boat and keep an eye on exactly what is happening onboard at all times. The system sends emails and text messages when events occur and saves a snapshot or video clip to the user’s account which is accessible on any computer or mobile phone with internet access. The owner sees what the camera sees when motion is detected and it also allows the owner to login and view streaming video off the boat on their computer or cell phone.

In addition, Insight notifies a boat owner or captain with a phone call if there’s high water in the bilge, low battery voltage, loss of shore power, smoke or intrusion.

The GOST Immobilizer, an easy-to-install boat security system for single-engine boats, yacht tenders, RIBs and PWCs.


The device is controlled via a wireless key fob. When armed, the Immobilizer blocks high current draw from the battery while still allowing low power consumption components such as stereo memory to function normally. When an engine startup is attempted, the Immobilizer sounds a timed siren and prevents the engine from turning over.
