Global Star is another company that specializes in satellite communications, much like Iridium. From what I have read, it seems the best option for the boat is one of their three simplex data modems. They all mention that they are ideal for tracking moving targets such as boats, trucks, etc. and their ranges all cover the Atlantic Ocean. However, they seem to only send one-way communications and they also require a subscription just like Iridium.
