Datatag Marine Boats / Ribs Security & Registration Theft Deterrent System

Datatag Marine Security System

Electronic Security Identification System for Boats and Ribs

Theft of boats and equipment has become a major problem in the UK, and the Police face a very difficult task in tackling the marine crime wave.

Security measures in the marine world are usually inadequate compared to those found on most cars. Typically the average boat is very vulnerable. Firstly in terms of altering its original identity by tampering or removing the hull or engine number creating an almost impossible task for the Police or prospective purchaser to identify.

Secondly these craft are easy to move for criminals whilst on their trailers, unless they are stored in a secure location.

Datatag consists of a range of electronic transponders, Datadot®s and visible ID labels that contain unique identification numbers. The Datatag Marine Theft Deterrent System makes your boat easy to identify and therefore much less attractive to thieves.

All the Police have to do is call our 24 hour 7 day a week call centre with a visible ID number or scan the craft and provide a unique transponder code to establish or confirm the registered keeper within minutes.

Since its introduction in the 1990's, Datatag has already slashed theft rates of both Datatagged Motorcycles and Personal Watercraft. At the same time the recovery rates for stolen equipment have soared, and numerous convictions have been secured thanks to Datatag.

This system includes Datatdots® and Ultra Destruct Labels, which help identify key onboard equipment such as:

  • FishFinders
  • SatNav and GPS Equipment
  • Audio Visual Equipment

Some insurers offer a yearly insurance benefit, such as a zero theft excess or reduction in premium.
