IDEA Yacht (a product by IDEA Data Solutions GmbH) was founded in 2001 in Dusseldorf Germany, under the original name of IDEA Nautic and Data Solutions GmbH by Sebastian and Klaus Allebrodt.
Since then, we have been distributing our yacht management software primarily across Europe and the US. To date, we have successfully completed more than 900 projects on yachts, ranging from 20m to 180m. We have a market share of approximately 60% in the 50+m market segment.
In 2008, the Company was acquired by the SpecTec Group, which is one of the leading software companies in the commercial shipping industry. Henceforth to be known as SpecTec GmbH. Ten years later, in 2018 we became independent again, and rebranded ourselves as IDEA Data Solutions GmbH.
