Thrane & Thrane Sailor 250 Fleet Broadband complete

I just bought a boat that has the Thrane & Thrane Sailor 250 Fleet Broadband System installed. I don't have a need for it so it's up for sale.

For sale for $4,000. New price is $7,700 (see Cobham Sailor 250 FleetBroadband Marine Satellite Terminal | NorthernAxcess). The unit is probably less than five years old, the previous owner did the ARC 2011, 2012, and 2013 and I understood he bought it for that purpose.

It's still installed on my boat, I'll dismount it for the buyer. You are also welcome to come and look it over at an agreed time. It includes the original Installation Manual, User Manual (Fleet Broadband), User Manual (Thrane IP Handset), and Quick Guide (IP Handset, Wired).

The system specifications are:

I see so many people asking about internet connectivity and phone service at sea, I'm surprised there hasn't been more interest.

Probably because 99% of the people that ask that question are either sailing newbies or tech newbies and they are expecting some kind of solution similar to land based IE couple hundred for a modem and router and $40-$50/month access.

When they find out the cost for at sea broad band internet it's a heart stopper.
