Starlink offers blazing fast internet at an affordable cost if you are using the Mobile Regional plan. However, to get the full picture, consider these points below:
Our recommendation is to use the Starlink Mobile Regional plan with a standard antenna when at anchor, and use the Iridium GO! exec on passage.
Why? For most yachts, the Starlink flat high performance antenna, which is necessary for in motion use, requires too much power for the average yacht. Services such as GPS tracking require Starlink to be switched on 24hrs a day, which leads to high power usage. By comparison, the Starlink standard antenna is almost half the size and power requirement of the high performance antenna.
The GO! exec gives you peace of mind when heading offshore, with a portable unit that can be used in a life raft, full voice capability, and an SOS button to keep you safe, anywhere in the world.
