Captain Steven Blanche
My name is Steve Blanche, I am the captain of the motor yacht Blue Moon. Blue Moon is an 80 foot
Marlow built in 2007 stationed out of Ocean Reef Club in Key Largo. Within the last year Oceanwide Electronics has begun updating all of Blue Moon’s Electronics. The updates that Rob and his team installed include a completely new Garmin navigation system, two new sonars (one forward facing), KVH system, cameras, network system, and AV system. During this time Rob and all of Oceanwide have been extremely professional and approachable. Rob and his staff are all easy to get a hold of with a phone call or email to answer questions and provide support. Following all of these updates and installs Oceanwide left the boat in great condition and just as it was when they started. During the work, they kept the boat in great shape and clean. I look forward to working with Rob on future projects and am recommending them to other boat captains.
Managing Partner Down East Yachting
Oceanwide Electronics exclusively took over our electronics needs (component supply and installation on new OEM equipment), over three years ago, not just for stock and in-stock inventory, but also has handled remote installations on new customer orders as far away as the opposite end of the eastern seaboard.
Working for an OEM dealer requires that also will end up in some cases working the production facilities of the manufacturer. Not only does Oceanwide have this capability, will earn the respect of those they are working with directly, but also those working around them - I have watched it. Skeptics always try to make it difficult on new vendors - time and time again, Oceanwide has made it a non-issue for me to send them to any location and not have to worry about interaction with any other team in any other location - this is a critical requirement for me.
You will be hard-pressed to find and installer from Palm Beach County/Martin County that handles as much high-end OEM work as Oceanwide, and I would have absolutely zero concerns about them doing work at your facility.
Captain John Chabala,
As a Yacht Captain, one of the most important professional relationships I have established over the years is with our marine electronics contractor. Yacht owners will always demand the latest and greatest technology in and out of the wheelhouse. The 92’ Nordhavn “Warbird” has been no exception. Oceanwide Electronics is responsible for the completed installation and transformation of Warbird’s navigation and audio/visual equipment. Rob and his team are always able to keep up with our constant demands for upgrades, change, and integration. Their work is always completed on time and budget with complete transparency. Their role doesn’t end after the installation. Oceanwide also keeps all of our firmware, software, and charts up to date throughout the year. I would highly recommend Oceanwide Electronics to any boat owner or captain looking for the same level of support.
Donna Jenson, GM, Whiticar Boat Works
We are happy to recommend Oceanwide Electronics for all of your marine related services. For the past 5 years Rob and his crew have been our "go to" when it comes to electronics. Their prices are reasonable, superior customer service, and their reputation has grown to be quite high. Give them a call.
Susan and Don Blaser
Rob - Thank you so much for the great work you did on Passage. We also appreciate the time you took with us. You are very patient and you will probably hear from us from time to time as we forget stuff. Again, thank you!
