Solemates is a 60-metre ‘superyacht’ and one of the world’s most exclusive charter craft – going for $600,000 per week. And the iPad is playing a major role on board the Solemates, as concierge.
It’s also one of the most cutting edge thanks to a new system that lets guests control various functions via an iPad. Don’t happen to own one? Not a problem – the captain hands each guest their own iPad when they step aboard. Via the device they can control the shipboard entertainment and climate systems, adjust the blinds and lights in their cabins, and even summon a crewmember to bring more cocktails.
Needless to say, I’ll be looking to test out how well the iPad is doing as concierge – just as soon as I have a spare 600K laying around and can get a week booked. :)
