Welcome to


Technology is making progress, comfort is increasing. What was luxury yesterday is already standard today. Why does this seem to apply to the automobile, but hardly to the boat? Remote monitoring, smart home, all nice terms that sound like dreams of the future: "If I could afford it...", "If I had a new car, house, or boat, I would ask for it."

Why wait?

Treat yourself to the comfort of seeing important data of your boat on your cell phone. Water ingress, movement, manipulation of the device will trigger an immediate alarm. Position, battery voltage, temperature are transmitted regularly.

Is this only for luxury yachts?

No. From the very beginning, a solution was conceived that is already useful, robust and affordable for small boats. A small, waterproof design, easy installation, the (possible) independence from a board battery and services without a monthly basic fee are the successes of this endeavor.

The Team

Who's behind it?

Hendrik Basler (Dipl.-Ing., MBA): I am founder and managing director of ThingsOfficer GmbH, passionate water sportsman and experienced engineer (industries: Medical technology, automation, battery technology and electric drives.... for boats!).

After a nice day on an electric boat, I drove home wondering if I had plugged in the charger. The boat was borrowed and I had promised to recharge it. Drive 100 km just to check? Is that necessary? How would it be actually if...? What solutions already exist? What could I do better? Convinced of bringing a superior product to the market, I am committed to it every day since 2019.

I look forward to hearing from you. I will gladly accept wishes, suggestions and criticism in person. Write to:

Jakob Reinehr (Dipl.-Inf.): I'm on board (haha) since the beginning of 2020 and take care of app development and backend communication. Before that, I spent 8 years as a full stack developer writing, distributing and maintaining web applications for over 100 schools.

When I met Hendrik at CoWorking, the opportunity for something new came up. And BoatOfficer is a super opportunity to develop new, smart technologies for an exciting and attractive market - from sensors to apps.
