Fire is a major fear for anyone sailing offshore, even if the boat has ample extinguishers. Sea-Fire Marine’s integrated fire-suppression management system, called the Fire Control Panel, monitors cylinder pressure and fire, heat, carbon monoxide, and smoke levels; it can be programmed to simultaneously monitor—and shut down—up to eight specified onboard devices, including engines, generators, and ventilation systems. If the system detects a fire, the panel will turn off any affected device(s) and give the crew enough time to get on deck before activating the fire-suppression system (sold separately; designed to work with Sea-Fire’s engineered systems). $599.
