About MarkSetBot

MarkSetBot pioneered the world’s first fully robotized sail buoy, using a self-propelled, battery-powered motor and GPS technology to make placing and repositioning markers a breeze – no anchors or marker boats required.

The innovative company’s new technology reduces the fossil-fuel powered motorboats needed to set up a racecourse, eliminates anchors that destroy the seabed and drastically reduces the number of people involved in regatta management.
