Thomas Gunn announced the results of sea trials of its new Voyager 4 onboard navigation data management system. The sea trials are the final stage in the development of the new service which will launch on May 1, 2013.

The latest version will include global Navarea Warning information and provides a new route-planning tool to make it even easier to identify, update and download information needed for a vessel’s voyage as well as new time saving applications to help vessels navigate more safely and efficiently.

Voyager 4 has been installed on a wide range of vessels operating around the world to ensure the new system is thoroughly tested in live environments. More than twenty vessels have been involved with trials including USAC’s Hatta working out of Bahrain, Finner Shipping’s Red Fin, currently in Egypt, and Gulf Offshore’s Highland Eagle based in Aberdeen.  

“Sea trials are an essential stage of our new product development program. The Thomas Gunn Voyager team is made up of highly experienced mariners, navigators and technical experts, but at the end of the day it’s the experience on the bridge that determines our products’ success” said Mike Bailey, ex. Captain and ex. marine superintendent, and now Head of Product Development at Thomas Gunn. Sea trials feedback is essential in guaranteeing reliability, ease of use and ensuring Voyager is designed and developed to meet real-life operational requirements.”

New Voyager 4 provides a 100% complete BA Chart update service and has the one of best data compression rates available today. Voyager also includes a free Vessel Management Service to help ship owners and ship managers cut administration time, improve safety, better manage information and ensure compliance across the fleet – whether navigating with paper or using digital technology.

New Voyager 4 will be available from Thomas Gunn and its agents from May 2013.
