Have the ultimate summer party on your boat!

First Prev 1 2 Next Last

Imagine you want your golfing buddies to come over to watch the US Open being played from June 14-17 at the Olympic Club in San Francisco, California.

Well instead of sitting around in your living room watching the best players in the world try and win a major and a subsequent trip to Bermuda for the Grand Slam of Golf you can tell them to come over with their swim suits as they will be watching the tournament in your home theatre on your boat.

That is how some people may be watching the tournament this year.

But you must have a magnificent entertainment system on your boat. And it will not be cheap.

Edmund Faria from Sound Decision at 4 Woodlawns Road has put in top of the line systems into some boats in Bermuda but he also emphasised that if you just want a small CD sound system installed in your boat to make those weekends more fun, they can do that as well. “We do small and big jobs,” he said adding, “when it comes to boats it all comes down to what your budget allows.

“We can do whatever you what. We can put in CableVision or WOW or even both, along with full party systems, home theatres whatever system your boat can allow and whatever your budget will allow.

“If you have the money for it we can do it.”

Mr Faria said the biggest job he has done was on a customer’s 48-foot motor yacht. This boat ended up having everything.

“The job itself took about a month and pulling wire on its own took about a week and a half. It was the biggest job we have ever done.”

This boat had two flat screens in the home theatre room and another flat screen in the bedroom as well as CableVision and WOW boxes in the bedroom and a cable box outside. And the customer could access any TV or sound system from anywhere on the boat. If he wanted he could listen to his satellite radio on the bridge, the CD on the stern, the Cable outside, the WOW in his bedroom all at once.

“This is a guy who really likes his boat and he could spend whatever amount he wanted to. He doesn’t live on the boat either. In fact the boat sits at the dock 90 percent of the year.”

While everything is very discreet on the boat, Mr Faria said they also installed two high quality JBL speakers and a separate amplifier to be plugged in at the stern for when the customer really wanted to “party on the water!”

Noting that CableVision can only be accessed when the boat is alongside the dock, Mr Faria said the owner uses the WOW box when he is on the water.

“You can get WOW in most places off the Island although there are a couple of dead spots. But not many. It’s not an issue for him.”

Gone are the days when you thought you had the coolest boat on the water with your tape deck.

“Today, it is basically how far can your pocket can take you. In this industry the sky is the limit.

“There is so much new technology now and so many new ways of doing things that allows you do so much more than back in the day.”

Whether you just want a nice CD sound system in your boat or the full course, Mr Faria said it is best that you drop in and see him at the offices of Sound Decision at 4 Woodlawns Road or call 292 0768.

He added: “I recommend you come in for a quick chat and then I will go and look at your boat. Every boat lends itself to different things. What I did yesterday to one boat may not apply to a boat I look at today. Also technology is changing so fast as well.”
