Finally, there is a way to protect your loved ones and guests while swimming around your boat. Introducing the Ocean Guardian Boat01, the world's first electrical shark deterrent designed specifically for boats to change your boating experience. Powered by Shark Shield Technology, simply drop your anchor, easily deploy the Boat01 of the back of any vessel and give you and your guests the confidence to jump in without reservation. No more – are there sharks? I'm too scared to go in...

Whether you own a leisure boat, fishing boat or dingy, the Boat01 is powered by Shark Shield Technology, the world's only scientifically proven and independently tested electrical deterrent, and will be available in market from late 2018 / early 2019 with a target RRP starting at $2,499.

So, how far from the boat can you swim? The new model provides a large and powerful protective area for swimming of up to 10 meters in depth and over six meters wide through two user-changeable antenna options, depending on the depth of the water.
