The SAILMON story

 

SAILMON is founded early 2014 in the Netherlands by Kalle Coster, Peter Houtzagers and Enno Romkema. All three share a passion for sailing! They see sailing as the best and most diverse sport in the world. Sailing technology however was -and is- outdated. Over the years sailors have simply come to accept and ignore this. SAILMON believes there is so much more potential to the sport with the right technology.

The founders believe there is great need for disruptive innovation in the market for nautical equipment. In terms of hardware and software, as well as for cloud solutions. And on the service side, such as customer support and satisfaction. Introducing new concepts of how to display, handle and monitor information about sailing performance and boat systems. On board as well as remote: no matter where you are, through SAILMON, on board data and video is available everywhere, on every device, for everyone.

Kalle Coster

 

Kalle Coster is a three-time Olympic sailor and entrepreneur. All his sailing life, he demonstrated a special interest in sailing electronics. Experimenting various hardware and software solutions, in his 470, or the coach boat, or any other racing yacht. After finishing his Olympic career, he decided to take this to a higher, serious level, and therefore teamed up with Peter Houtzagers and Enno Romkema.

 

My goal is to see more people – and specifically the play-station generation – enjoy the sport, that more people will take up sailing (competitively). A very important factor in reaching this objective is innovation.
