Quartermaster was designed by yacht owners to solve the needs of owners and captains. We built an intuitive application that allows you to easily manage your yacht, for yourself and for your crew.
You can use Quartermaster from any of your internet connected devices, like your laptop, tablet or smart phone.
Capture your data on your laptop and have it available on any device. You will always have access to the latest features and your data is always in sync securely stored in the cloud.
Once upon a time, we bought a sailboat. We quickly saw the need to organize the systems, maintenance and logs and thought the best place to do it would be through an app: be it on your computer or mobile device.
Our two passions merged: building great software solutions for real people, and yachting. We talked to many yachting friends about what they need, and we went to work to build something that all of us can use.
We are proud to launch Quartermaster for all yacht owners and captains on the water and at the dock. We look forward to hearing how Quartermaster is helping you, and how we can better taylor it to your needs.

Quartermaster is a comprehensive yacht management software solution that helps you organize all of your yacht's data in one place. It provides an easy to use dashboard to organize your yacht's systems, an electronic logbook for your log entries, a way to track services needed for each systems with configurable reminders, a service log, a task system to track your 'to-do' list, inventory to manage your spare parts, dry food, water toys and other items, and file storage for your manuals, documentation and receipts. It also allows you to add crew to your yacht and assign them tasks, or simply give them access to the yacht information for better collaboration. If you have an Iridium Go, you can use Quartermaster to track your yacht and show your track on a map. You can also embed your tracking map on your blog or web site. With a simple, quick set-up you can access all these features for free for the first 30 days, with plans starting at just $1.99/mo afterwards.
Your data security is our number one priority. Our system uses state of the art, industry standard infrastructure and encryption. We work with well recognize third parties like Microsoft Azure, Amazon AWS and Stripe to transmit and store your data. Access to your account is controlled by strict user access levels that only you or your authorized users can access.
You can create a free trial account in just minutes. You will answer questions about the type of yacht (sail, power, or tender), manufacturer and model which automatically creates a sample set-up for you. Customizing your dashboard is as easy as uploading your yacht's schematics and you can start placing systems on your dashboard right away. Depending on the type and complexity of your yacht, a full set-up for your systems and logs can be between a couple of minutes and a couple of hours. Uploading your manuals for future reference can take some extra time depending on how many you have. The system will help you keep on top of your maintenance logs by reminding you to complete tasks and log items related to your systems.
Learn more about setting up your yacht in our Quick Start guide.
Unfortunately at this point we do not offer a service to help you scan and upload your manuals. If you think this might be a good idea please send us an email at email@example.com
The number of yachts you can set up in one account depends on the plan you have signed up for: 1 yacht for the Owner plan, 3 yachts for the Captain plan, and 20 yachts for the Fleet plan. When you first sign up, you will be able to set up several yachts to try out our features and then make your decision on which plan to choose. If you choose the Owner plan but you would like to track your dingy, we recommend you use an additional dashboard to capture that information. If you need to manage a fleet of more than 20 yachts (for example, if you provide services for cleaning or repair), we can offer that as an enterprise account. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for details on the pricing.
The number of users or crew you can set up in one account depends on the plan you have signed up for: 2 users including yourslef for the Owner plan, 5 users for the Captain plan, and 50 users for the Fleet plan. If you need to give access to more than 50 users (for example, if you manage a superyacht), we can accomodate that as an enterprise account. Please contact us at email@example.com for details on the pricing.
Your crew has full access to the data of the specific yachts you have given them access to. They can see and modify the dashboard, systems, logs, as well the tasks assigned to them. They do not have access to your account information, such as your payment details.
If you and your partner sail on the same yacht, the primary owner should create an account to set up the yacht and give access to their partner to the yacht. The partner will be able to log into their own account and access all the information in the same yacht.
The number and size of files that can be uploaded is determined by your account type. Each file uploaded has an upper limit of 100 MB. For trial and Owner accounts, there is a total limit for all files uploaded of 1 GB. For Captain accounts, there is a total limit of 5 GB and for Fleet accounts there is a total limit of 20 GB. If you need more, just e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can set you up with a custom plan.
All you need to get started is a computer or tablet with internet access and a browser. We recommend Chrome or Safari. To set up your yacht, you will need a computer or a large tablet. You can then use Quartermaster on your mobile device using our web site or app as long as you have internet access.
Yes you can. With the latest version of our mobile app, all your data will be cached locally on your device and accessible when your device is offline. Any changes you make, will sync to our server when you're device is back online. You can also sync all or some of your files. Go to the Sync page from the Account tab in the app to set a threshold for the size of files you want to sync for offline access.
Tracking is best done with an Iridum Go device. Our guide shows you step by step how to set up tracking for your yacht.
