Shipshape.PRO is the brainchild of Merrill Charette and Talha Bhatty, two enterprising live-aboards who have previously worked together to develop a portable, multifunctional utility kit under their umbrella company United Marine Systems. This kit: The Dinghy Thingy, includes various utilities – a battery, a bilge pump, a solar charger and speakers among other things – was purpose-built to optimize for space on dinghies and received much recognition at the Newport and Boston boat shows.
With a combined 11 years of marine experience, coupled with a cumulative 37 years of business management and digital transformation experience, Merrill and Talha have taken it upon themselves to bring the geographically scattered and digitally handicapped marine industry onto a comprehensive online platform – Shipshape.PRO.
