  • Easy installation: Just plug in a VHF antenna and connect to 12-24 VDC. WatchMate XB-8000’s low power consumption that keeps it always on, always visible, always watching.
  • The WatchMate XB-8000 is water proof (IPx7) so it can safely be mounted most anywhere.
  • Galvanically isolated USB port ensures the transponder and any connected equipment (e.g. laptops) are always protected against damage and can be used at any time.

WatchMate XB-8000 is the world's only black box transponder with built-in smartAIS alarms. Get alerted with the external audible alarm included with the XB-8000 that sounds if it detects a risk in case of potential collisions, dragging anchor or man overboard situations. The alarm sounds even if your MFD or mobile device is switched off.

WatchMate XB-8000 is the world's only black box transponder with built-in smartAIS alarms. Get alerted with the external audible alarm included with the XB-8000 that sounds if it detects a risk in case of potential collisions, dragging anchor or man overboard situations. The alarm sounds even if your MFD or mobile device is switched off.

The AIS data is sent every few seconds and includes information such as course, speed, latitude, longitude, and heading. Static information about the vessel is sent every few minutes and includes the name, type of vessel, length, beam, draft, etc.

Unlike normal AIS which send and receive AIS data, WatchMate XB-8000 has smartAIS which is an active system with smart alarm logic that alerts you rapidly to potential dangers.

Every boater knows that being at anchor is no guarantee of total safety. In particular, anchors can drag without those on board being aware. Thanks to Anchor Watch, however, you can be safer and sleep well at night. That’s because Anchor Watch sounds the alarm if you drift outside a zone defined around your anchor position. Activate the anchor watch when you drop the anchor using either a wired switch or your smartphone or smartwatch remotely from the windlass or anywhere on-board.

WatchMate XB-8000’s Man Overboard (MOB) alarm sounds the alarm you the instant somebody goes over the side and activates his AIS MOB device. The Alarm clearly identifies the MOB on the display screen and gives you the location, bearing and range of the person for quick retrieval. It also provides continuous updates of position, bearing and range.

WatchMate XB-8000 has built-in Wi-Fi. You can securely connect up to 5 other devices simultaneously. You can have a wireless connection to your laptop, smartphone and tablet.

Besides AIS data, GPS and NMEA instrument data can be shared with all your mobile devices and laptops. This is exclusive to Vesper Marine smartAIS transponders. Manage your vessel’s navigation, set and monitor alarms or take decisive action from anywhere on-board using your mobile device.

WatchMate XB-8000 provides dual WiFi configuration as either a secure Access Point supporting up to five other devices simultaneously or connected to an existing router providing WiFi expansion capability to unlimited devices.

WatchMate XB-8000 is equipped with a fast 5Hz GPS navigation and update rate. This provides greater detail and higher resolution plotting. Displays GPS satellite status and navigation data such as your position, course and speed viewed from the My Vessel screen.

Use it as a source of GPS data on a NMEA 2000 network which means you do not need an additional GPS antenna. View GPS data on your plotter or MFD, with higher resolution and smoother tracks even during high speed maneuvers.
