Bang & Olufsen, the Danish manufacturer of perhaps the finest audio and video systems available today, is entering into the market for fully-integrated onboard entertainment solutions for the discerning luxury yacht owner. For many years, Bang & Olufsen has offered yacht installations on request for existing customers; now the company will establish ties with yacht installers worldwide.
The market for onboard installations of quality entertainment solutions for luxury yachts has experienced substantial growth in recent years. It is a highly demanding market, because of technical, safety, and service issues when at sea, and it is also a market where price means less than reliability, completeness, elegance, and integration.
“Considering the huge costs involved in the luxury yacht market, it is amazing how little customers spend on their onboard entertainment systems, and how little consideration they give to the total entertainment experience, often buying a pre-defined package;” says Torben Ballegaard Sorensen, CEO, Bang & Olufsen. “Considering the listening and viewing enjoyment, as well as the ease of interaction and integration our products offer the user, Bang & Olufsen ought to be the preferred onboard entertainment solution for all quality conscious luxury yacht owners and installers.”
