Tracking Device Leads Florida Sheriff’s Department To Stolen Boat Within 60 Minutes

Paradox Marine reports that the Nav-Tracker 2.0 wireless boat location and GPS tracking system helped recover a $200,000 35-foot Fountain boat within 60 minutes.

According to Paradox Marine, Boat owner Alberto Verdesi had installed the Nav-Tracker system in October. About 6 am ET on Saturday morning, January 3, Nav-Tracker sent a text message to Verdesi’s cell phone that his boat was on the move without his permission and where it was headed.

He called the Broward Sheriff’s Department, which dispatched a helicopter to locate the boat. When the helicopter flew over the location, the thieves ran off, but the $200,000 boat was recovered in good shape.
