The Crew Connectivity Survey

The Report that’s become an industry standard

Since 2012 the Crew Connectivity Survey Report from Futurenautics Maritime has become an industry standard, used by seafarers and ship operators to benchmark the connectivity on board vessels and by a huge range of maritime stakeholders to understand the increasing impact of connectivity not just on ship board life, but also on operational efficiency, safety, security, productivity and how such digital infrastructure is shaping the industry’s emerging future.


6,000 seafarer respondents. 30 nationalities. The most comprehensive survey in the maritime industry

Launching on 27th March the 2018 Crew Connectivity Survey Report has once again grown both in size and scope with close to 6,000 serving seafarer respondents from more than 30 countries. Thanks to sponsors KVH Industries and Intelsat the report’s analysis and dataset will once again be made available free of charge.
