Smartune is a product developed by Cyclops Marine, a British company bringing together professional engineers and sailors to develop smart fittings and systems that deliver the information crews need to race, manage and maintain the sophisticated structures of a modern yacht’s rig, foils and equipment.

We run an active design team developing sensors, fittings and software, and have a network of suppliers across the aerospace and nuclear industries to give us the advanced manufacturing capacity to deliver smart fittings and systems quickly and reliably.

All our smart fittings are individually proof-tested and calibrated in identical load configurations to your yacht, meaning you can trust the data ‘straight out of the box’.

Based in Cambridge UK, we are closely linked to a network of researchers giving us early access to new ideas and technologies for our next generation of products and systems.
