We are introducing a new shiny labeling display.
We made the display of the vessel tracks even more precise and introduced a new modus for the last track of a selected vessel. If the vessel is on its journey for more then 24h FM Explorer will recall the traveled route to the last port visited.
The new feature will give you more insight with just a single click.

Finally, Fleetmon says “¡Bienvenido y Bem-vindo!” to the spanish and portuguese speaking world! We know there are a lot of you speaking these wonderful languages and we hope you enjoy the new translations as much as we do. You have feedback, suggestions or found a failure? Please let us know, we are always happy to improve!
We would like to thank all users and supporters who helped us translating over the last weeks – you made a great job and deserve the credit! Next milestones are French, Dutch and the Scandinavian languages.

With a small site update today, we are happy to announce two small but very useful new features on FleetMon.com.
For every active ship, FleetMon now records extensive speed statistics, so you can research average speed and maximum speed of about a quarter million vessels in the FleetMon Vessel Database right now!
Fleetmon knows average and maximum speed of more than a quarter milion vessels
Comparing “design speed” against the recorded, real-life speed and average performance is a most interesting and valuable information, for example in purchasing and chartering. Speed statistics values are available on Pro and Unlimited accounts.
Another new and practical feature are the new validity hints for vessel IMO number and Callsigns. Whenever Fleetmon comes across an IMO number or a call sign that it thinks is not valid — be it by transmission error or lazy configuration of the vessel’s AIS sender –, FleetMon will display a warning sign beneath it:
We hope that these new little tools are helpful for you! As always, let us know what you think about it – we’re looking forward to your feedback.
The Fleetmon Team is thrilled to follow the racing yacht SPEEDSAILING SEB during the race “Round Skagen”. The SEB is a 60 footer, former Volvo Ocean Race participant now based in the Fleetmon hometown Rostock, and the “Round Skagen Race”, leading 510 nm from Helgoland Island around Denmark to Kiel, is said to be the longest and most challenging high seas race in Germany.
Coming right on the heels of the Marathon, this is another yacht choosing the FleetMon Satellite Tracking service to track their voyage and keep friends, families and partners up to date.
And, what’s more: They are currently leading, with some 15 nm lead on the runner-up! Go, SEB!
We’ll keep you posted with updates here and on our Twitter account. German-speaking users may also check out the Speedsailing Facebook page and their blog.
