Fleet One is specifically designed to meet the low data usage demands of occasional or seasonal users when they move out of VHF or GSM coverage areas. Inmarsat now offers two service plans to put satellite broadband in the reach of any size of commercial or leisure vessel.
FLEET ONE GLOBAL
Fleet One Global offers flexible connectivity for any size of vessel, available for one price anywhere on the world’s seas. Fleet One Global meets the voice and data needs of a wide range of users, from fishing and regional merchant vessels to global recreational seafarers. There is no vessel size limit.
There is one global rate and a choice of prepaid or postpaid options. Fleet One Global is flexible – you can de-activate and re-activate the service at any time so you only pay for it when you need it – making it ideal for both seasonal and regular users.
FLEET ONE COASTAL
With Fleet One Coastal, recreational sailors and small regional fishing boat operators can access tailored airtime pricing in key coastal regions to keep costs down.
The service is aimed at occasional users looking to stay connected without having to worry about cellular coverage or network roaming charges. Competitive rates are available for prepaid use – ideal for one-off trips.
Fleet One Coastal is available to vessels under 500 gross tonnage. Typical users are small fishing and leisure boats up to 24 metres.

Inmarsat C provides two-way data and messaging communication services to and from virtually anywhere in the world. The low-cost terminals and antennas are small enough to be fitted to any size of ship.
Safety communications using Inmarsat C
Inmarsat C is a two-way store and forward communication system that transmits messages in data packets in ship-to-shore, shore-to-ship and ship-to-ship direction.
Inmarsat C comprises of a small omnidirectional antenna, compact transceiver (transmitter and receiver), messaging unit and, if GMDSS-compliant or with a distress function, a Dedicated Distress Button to activate a Distress Alert.
Inmarsat Mini C terminals are the smallest models available, with some incorporating the antenna and transceiver in the same above deck unit and, depending on the model, supporting the same communication services as Inmarsat C terminals.
To protect crew and vessels, modern Inmarsat C and Mini C terminals include an integrated Global Navigational Satellite Services (GNSS) receiver, providing automatic terminal position updates and reporting when a distress alert is initiated. The vessel’s position data (position, course and speed) is shared with reporting applications.
Safety features of Inmarsat C and Mini C
Distress alerting – a mandatory service on SOLAS-compliant maritime Inmarsat C and Mini C terminals and on some non-SOLAS models too. Distress alerts are issued when a ship or crew is in grave and imminent danger. When there is no time to input information manually into the terminal, crew can simply press and hold down the Dedicated Distress Button for approximately five seconds to transmit the alert.
Enhanced Group Calls (ECG) – the broadcasting of Maritime Safety Information and Search and Rescue, related information messages over Inmarsat C, Mini C and Fleet Safety terminals, through SafetyNET , SafetyNET II, RescueNET and FleetNET services.
Data reporting and polling -short data reports, up to four data packets, that are sent to shore-based authorities or operational centres, such as Long Range Identification and Tracking (LRIT) of ships, as required by the IMO. Data reports consist of information such as a vessel’s position report, sailing plan, or fisheries catch report – in fact any data that can be encoded into data packets and sent from ships regularly, randomly or in response to a polling command from a shore-based operational centre.
