Rugged Laptops For Marine And Boat Diagnostics

What is the Best Laptop for Marine Diagnostics?

Whether you use them for fun or in your business, boats need to be well maintained and repaired to keep them operating. Ships and other large vessels need more intensive maintenance and fail-safe diagnostic tools to ensure they keep running without endangering lives or impacting negatively on commercial operations.

When it comes to any type of marine diagnostics, you need the best possible rugged laptop you can get. Irrespective of which software you need to do the job, a Panasonic TOUGHBOOK laptop or tablet will complete your diagnostic solution.

Chances are when you buy your marine outboard and inboard engines, and other marine equipment, the sale will include the recommended software. Some manufacturers offer computer hardware and other diagnostic tools with their software solutions as an additional package deal.

It might seem easier to get everything from one supplier, but it’s not necessarily a cost-effective option.

It’s usually a lot less expensive to pair the software with a suitable laptop or tablet from a company like Mooring Tech that specializes in laptops and tablets for marine diagnostic and repair work.

If you do some research you will likely find that most companies offering diagnostic tools for marine equipment recommend Panasonic TOUGHBOOK laptops.

But, the reality is that by bundling software and hardware together, consumers are usually charged a premium price. Since diagnostic software providers typically offer stand-alone solutions, it makes total sense to buy the hardware separately.

Mooring Tech recommends three TOUGHBOOK models for marine vessel diagnostics and repair work. They are all rugged and capable of surviving the tough marine environments they will be exposed to. You get the software and we will help you choose the best hardware for your diagnostics.



The TOUGHBOOK 55 is an exceptionally tough, semi-rugged laptop designed in the traditional clamshell style. It is the only TOUGHBOOK that has a DVD drive option, making it a no-brainer for any person or company that has diagnostic software available to load from CD or DVD.

It features an innovative modular design that allows memory and storage upgrades and other expansion options. The color-selectable backlit keyboard has a night mode that helps preserve night vision and reduce eye strain.

No worries about battery life as you can get up to 40 hours with an optional second battery.




The Panasonic TOUGHBOOK 33 is a tough, full-rugged, full-sized 2-in-1 laptop/tablet combination. It’s particularly useful when carrying out diagnostics and repairs in tight spaces.

The battery life is 10 hours, extendable to 20 with an optional long-life battery.




The Panasonic TOUGHBOOK G2 is also a fully-rugged 2-in-1 device, but it is smaller and more portable than the TOUGHBOOK 33. It incorporates leading technology that allows technicians to work in the most challenging environments, no matter how hot, cold, dirty, or wet they are. A real bonus in a marine environment.
