[RC232] “we are building an application with one master boat, which communicates with 150 slaves boats (obviously in open sea). Each slave boat will have a bit rate of 1Kbps to the master boat, the signal range must be till 2km. We are considering using RC17xxHP-RC232 modules to communicate with master boat and slaves. Our questions are: It will be the RC1780HP-RC232 module suitable for this application, or you propose some other module? It’s possible with this device to create a multipoint network (one master, many slaves)? Does your modules have frequency hopping function? “

RC1780HP-RC232 is a excellent choice for your multipoint network. It supports one master many slaves. Please see RC232 User Manual for details about the embedded protocol. Frequency hopping is not included in the protocol, but it support channel configuration so that you on the host side can implement multi-channel system.
