Building on its already extensive range of member reward offers and benefits, the RYA is pleased to welcome DATATAG to the member partnership programme.  

Sadly each year many thousands of outboard motors are stolen with thieves often causing serious damage to boats in the process but thanks to this new partnership RYA members can now enjoy 25% off the RRP of a DATATAG Outboard Motor Theft Deterrent System.  

The DATATAG electronic identification system is designed to act as both a powerful deterrent against theft and as an invaluable aide to recovery in the event of a loss.   

“We have proven ourselves in many markets and we are confident that the secure marking technologies in our outboard system will act as a powerful deterrent to theft in the first instance and also aide recovery if a loss is experienced”, commented Dave Luscombe of Datatag.  

The DATATAG system contains everything that is required to protect your outboard engine including:

  • 'Stealth' UV etching technology - almost invisible unique UV etched numbers which cannot be washed off
  • Datatag Datadots® - hundreds of microscopic unique identifiers in a UV trace silicon glue
  • High quality ultra-destruct warning label with QR code - a visible deterrent to thieves and almost impossible to remove 
  • Glass tag electronic transponder with a unique embedded identification number - hidden inside the engines wiring this technology required no power and cannot be erased or reprogrammed  

Designed in such a way as to be easily installed by the owner of the outboard motor the DATATAG security technology gives your outboard motor a unique 'fingerprint' that can be established, by the police or insurance industry, in a number of different ways. The unique identity is virtually impossible to remove however hard a criminal may try, providing a significant deterrent factor for your engine.  

“Sadly outboard theft is a reality but being able to offer our members substantial discounts on systems such as DATATAG and encouraging our members to take steps to protect their outboards against theft, could prove invaluable in helping reduce those numbers”, commented Conor Swift, RYA Membership Development Manager.
