The New Innovative Bridge by Onyx Marine Automation (Team Italia Group)

Onyx Marine, a TEAM Italia Group company, is the technological partner for automation of EXTRA Yachts, a brand of Palumbo Superyachts.

The EXTRA 86 model, a 23.48 mt yacht, is equipped the with Onyx Marine automation system, designed in association with the Palumbo Superyachts technical office. The secret to the success of the company system lies in the custom design of its components for specific use in marine applications. Onyx Marine Automation is proud of the collaboration with the Palumbo Superyachts technical office for the systems on board of EXTRA 86. The clear, elegantly designed graphic interface is in line with the Extra series smart, well-known style, and has the immediacy and usability of all Onyx Marine graphics.

The main distinguishing feature of the EXTRA 86 yacht is a last generation 32” touch screen display installed on the bridge. Users can monitor and control a range of onboard tools and equipment, including bilge pumps, batteries, generators, levels, navigating lights, doors, portholes and much more. They can also manage the air-conditioning system, machine room ventilation system and the Power Management System (PMS) from the touch screen.


The system is managed by means of a second CPU which acts as a hot-swap backup unit, ready to take over from the main unit seamlessly if required. Moreover, a second Ethernet and CAN-bus network have been added to provide full functionality in order to ensure complete continuity in back-up mode and unparalleled levels of safety. It also includes all active alarms and alarms history management.

Another unique feature of the Onyx Marine monitoring system is managing the service batteries of the hull, all recharged using solar energy. The glazed surfaces of the salon on the EXTRA 86, in fact, feature photovoltaic cells for producing clean energy. Double-glazing units enable the recharging of the service batteries in order to use equipment such as lights and appliances, without having to switch on the generators when the yacht is in bay and interrupt peace and quiet of the surrounding nature. Battery charging is controlled directly by the Onyx Marine Automation system that manages also the navigation lights and all dimming external lights through its new powerful Dimmer modules.

Thanks to its valuable new functions Onyx Marine Automation increases performance and safety on board.
