Feb. 16, 2023 — During the 2023 Miami International Boat Show®
, Siren Marine introduced Siren Trident, an industry-first IoT software for marine engine maintenance and system compatibility that offers substantial benefits to Yamaha customers, dealers and boat builders. In addition, Grady-White and Regulator Marine will become the first two Siren Marine pilot boat builders, offering Trident as standard equipment on select 2024 model year boats.
“The data provided through Siren Trident enhances the overall boating experience and gives customers peace of mind that they can maintain their investment without having to remember maintenance intervals themselves. The teams at Grady-White®
know this is what today’s tech-savvy boaters demand,” said Mark Tracy, Vice President, Yamaha U.S. Marine Business Unit. “Siren Trident represents the continuation of the Connected Boat®
and advances IoT technology, and we look forward to working with the teams at Grady-White®
to put this technology into the hands of more customers.”
Siren Trident captures proprietary data on the Command Link Plus®
(CLP) protocol used in most Yamaha digital electronic control (DEC)* outboards. Using that data, Siren Trident provides customers and dealers with:
- Actual engine-hour run time and usage-based maintenance notifications with no required input from the user
- Compatibility of DEC rigging system components and currently installed versions
- Insights into real world boat use to support predictive and preventative maintenance
Operated via a smartphone and Siren Pro 3 system hardware, Siren Trident works specifically with Yamaha DEC outboards from 150 horsepower to 450 horsepower. The system accumulates engine run-time and, when maintenance intervals are reached, automatically sends notifications to the boater via push notification or email . Boaters can also elect to send those notifications directly to an authorized Yamaha Outboards dealer of the boater’s choice to help with proactive scheduling of the service required.
Siren Trident also allows easy verification of compatibility between installed CLP rigging components following assembly, service or repower. This saves time and effort on both the production and service floors, helping ensure a trouble-free ownership experience to the consumer.
