Case Study: ENIGMA XK


Super yacht ENIGMA XK was built in 1988 by Richards Shipbuilders. She is a 71m / 233ft Conversion motor yacht with exterior design by Philippe Brian and interior styling by Vitruvius. ENIGMA XK offers accommodation for up to 12 guests in 6 cabins with additional room for her crew of 19. She features a variety of amenities to ensure comfortable charter vacations, including Air Conditioning. WiFi connection on board, Deck Jacuzzi, Gym/exercise equipment and Stabilisiers underway.


Since years, connected systems have been installed on-board as add-ons on the existing LAN, resulting in hours of maintenance to troubleshoot issues and unexpected slowness. The IT infrastructure onboard the yacht was a stack of routers and L3/L2 switches due to multi installations and upgrades by successive integrators.


  • 1 MAX BR1 LTEA equipped with redundant SIM slots to receive 4G/LTEA.
  • 1 Multi-WAN Balance 580 to manage VLANs and route the traffic properly.
  • 13 SD switches with POE possibilities.
  • 20 AP ONE AC for Wi-Fi 2.4GHz and 5Ghz.


The well documented infrastructure is now fully managed and monitored by Peplink Certified Engineers through the SeaSatCare solution.
