Marine tech company, savvy navvy, has announced one of its first insurance collaborations with leading UK insurance specialist GJW Direct, which aims to significantly lower insurance claims whilst boosting exposure of the savvy app to all GJW Direct customers.

The savvy navvy app enables boaters to check essential marine information and plan trips at sea at the touch of a button, acting as a digital cross-check to traditional navigation.

"Our aim with savvy navvy is to make sailing fun for everyone. Our team believes traditional and modern navigation should work in harmony to keep boaters safe out on the water. By using savvy navvy to cross-check your traditional navigation plans we can actively help reduce the risk of human error and ultimately reduce insurance claims. We are delighted to team up with GJW Direct who are a reputable and trusted name within the marine industry. This collaboration will provide great exposure for savvy navvy to all GJW Direct users whilst also providing them with a great deal." Jelte Liebrand, ex-Googler and Founder of savvy navvy.

What is savvy navvy?

The savvy navvy app (backed by the founders of Kahoot) evolved out of the need to solve a common problem within the boating industry - navigation technology is outdated, cumbersome and difficult to use. In addition, research shows that sailors, on average, use up to four or more apps to plan a trip at sea and take one to two hours each day to update their calculations. For newcomers, this can be incredibly time consuming and intimidating.

With savvy navvy, the process is greatly simplified. Just like Google Maps, a sailor can plan a trip at the click of a button. Where Google Maps uses real-time traffic information, savvy navvy uses real-time weather forecasts and tidal data, in one app, on any device.

Ultimately savvy navvy makes navigation easy.
