Amsterdam is also home to our two dedicated FAT rooms, where we build entire yacht entertainment systems before they are installed onboard. Our clients love the possibility to try out the systems in advance, allowing them to make any tweaks required to make the installation truly personal.
Designing systems, figuring out how to make best use of new technologies and coming up with new solutions is also carried out in Amsterdam. Our designers, AVIT experts and product development team focus on creating the finest solutions for our clients. Whether it’s a new protocol to distribute signals, a new cable type or a new software solution, we’ll figure out how to integrate them into your yacht.Read more about our solutions
