Redefining Utility
with a Next Generation Display

As an industry leader in luxury and performance yachts, Regal Boats was the first in its class to equip their boats with an interactive touch screen interface for the 2011 model year. For this UI, ORGANI built off its existing nautical display experience to deliver a customizable and highly streamlined platform to enhance the Regal family boating experience.

ORGANI designed Regal’s new system for easy adaptation, facilitating a unique user experience for different boat models while still basing functionality off of a solid core platform. Its features include engine data monitoring, GPS with chart plotting, cruise control, media control, engine diagnostics and even video playback for DVDs and an optional camera input. This highly customizable platform allows user and manufacturer freedom on color palates, backgrounds, and more while maintaining a clean and easy-to-read layout.

Not a yacht but pretty close

The challenges included creating a fluid experience that catered to the rider’s needs despite the harsh demands of the environment. Traditionally, a great day for water sports ends up creating poor conditions for digital displays when direct sunlight and water spray negatively impact visibility. Colorful gradients can be washed out, and potentially important details are at risk of being obscured. To compensate for these conditions, ORGANI focused on creating and thoroughly field-testing different color palates and styling. The end result is a dynamic new look and feel that still performs in harsh outdoor environments.
