Florida Demo Day

On October 28th, Deep Trekker hosted two exciting demonstrations in Fort Lauderdale ahead of the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. Held in partnership with Yacht Chandlers, the demonstrations provided the opportunity for participants to test drive both the DTG3 and the REVOLUTION.
Held at Yacht Chandlers’ Fort Lauderdale headquarters, the first demonstration included lunch and refreshments for all participants involved. Making use of the large indoor pool, the Deep Trekker team set up rings, sinking toys and other obstacles for ROV pilots to put the robots through their paces.
With our ROV experts on hand, participants were able to learn piloting tips from the very best! By the end of the demonstration, everyone was confidently zooming around the pool to pick up the sinking toys littering the pool.
The second event was held outdoors at Yacht Chandler’s Lauderdale Marine Center (LMC) location with refreshments from the YOT Kitchen & Bar. Participants were able to pilot the ROVs in real conditions as they drove dockside at the LMC. This event provided an excellent opportunity for drivers to see how the ROVs functioned in real life, in real conditions. The turbid marine waters also allowed participants to put the sonar to use as they checked out neighbouring yachts.
Following the demonstrations, Deep Trekker spent the week at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show showing off the DTG3 with Brownie’s Yacht Diver. Our specialized tank allows attendees to drive the ROV for themselves, making for a fun and exciting week at the show!
