B&G’s Grand Prix systems combine our most sophisticated electronics with industry-leading software to drive world-class performances and realise sailing ambitions. Our precision marine electronics and unrivalled sailing heritage inspire results. Beyond every milestone and success we strive to push sailing innovation.
The Navigation Station
The navigation station on board a Grand Prix race boat is the centre of the navigator’s world. All performance data, weather data and competitor position data is available. The H5000 display provides quick oversight of all sailing data, the PCs run tactical software connected to the WTP3 instruments, Zeus³ multifunction displays provide sailing data, radar display, chart/AIS overview and also allow touchscreen control and monitoring of all on board systems via the digital switching system.
The heart of the system
The WTP3 CPU is the heart of a grand prix racing boat. It is the most powerful, flexible and reliable instrument system available for the professional yacht navigator. It calculates data quicker than any other system with amazing accuracy. It provides sailing data for the crew on deck, navigation data for the navigator and also processes the output from the engine, sailing instruments and other yacht systems for transmission back to race HQ.
B&G Instruments have been on board all winning boats in the Volvo Ocean Race, TP52 MedCup and America’s Cup along with setting records around the globe.
B&G understands the requirements of the professional racer – we understand that great products by themselves are not enough which is why our WTP3 systems are fitted by certified professionals and fully supported throughout your custom configuration.
