MY Shabby is hull 01 of the Azimut Grande Trideck 38M series. She features an integrated Crestron AV system onboard the vessel, including DM NAX Audio-over-IP system for high-performance Audio-over-IP (AoIP). Daniel Kerkhof, director of Crestron Marine, provider of contemporary AV distribution and automation solutions for the modern superyacht, explains the added value of the system in this video.

Identifying a gap in the market for an audio solution that fully integrates into a superyacht automation platform and provide compact and flexible amplifiers as well as high-resolution audio for even the most discerning audiophile, Crestron launched the DM NAX™ line. The DM NAX matrix/amplifier line brings unparalleled connectivity with native music streaming from today’s most popular services, as well as Apple AirPlay 2 for guests who rather cast their favorite platform from their own mobile device. With DM NAX integrated into the Crestron control system onboard, superyacht owners will gain full visibility and control of their audio from mobile devices, touch screens, remotes, keypads, and voice-activated devices.

With the flexibility, scalability, and interoperability of DM NAX AoIP, integrators can deliver complete control of the audio environment to users, allowing them to toggle between TV audio, streaming music, podcasts, alarms, and even paging and intercom usage to any speaker in the yacht.

“Our DM NAX solutions helps us further our goal of providing yacht owners the most comprehensive suite of marine audio solutions possible,” stated Daniel Kerkhof. “This product gives our partners the ability to hit the ground running, whether they are starting a new project or scaling the system for an existing client.”

But there’s a lot more to Shabby’s integrated Crestron AV system. It allows owner and crew to operate the entire workings of the yacht via touchpads and remotes. Guests can operate the televisions, sound system, lights, blinds and more. They can even upload images from their trip to the system and easily play music from their own phone in their cabin. The yacht’s captain, Captain Ramazan Dogan commented, “The Crestron system is incomparable to the other options available, there is nothing I have seen as comprehensive as this AV system.”
