...the recreational market introduction of its most advanced satellite television antenna ever. Evolved from market leading antenna systems, the all new SAILOR 100 Satellite TV offers a number of innovations including multi-polarisation and a programmable LNB to ensure high quality worldwide TV reception.

The SAILOR 100 Satellite TV is designed, developed, tested and manufactured in-house by Thrane & Thrane’s experienced engineers and is the most advanced, rugged and reliable satellite TV antenna ever built.

Rigorous in-house and at-sea testing ensures that the antenna lives up to the high standards of quality and reliability users have come to expect from all SAILOR equipment. With such high reliability, users on motorboats and luxury vessels can be sure that their viewing enjoyment won’t be ruined through interference or signal loss.
