Raymarine has been a leader in the design, production, marketing and sale of marine electronics for recreational boaters for many years. Their lineup includes everything from VHF radios to powerful radar systems.
Their current list of gear is long and expansive in both products and features. The recent purchase of the company by FLIR systems has invigorated the company and expanded the product line.
Chartplotters, MFDs and Combo Navigation Gear
Their entry level chartplotters start with the A-Series line. Other more expensive feature packed units make up the C-Series Classic and Widescreen lines and the powerful network capable E-series units.
Additionally, they have the powerful black box based G-Series lineup of multifunction display units and accessories which feature giant display screens up to 19-inches as well as powerful open array radar antennas.
The latest addition to the company’s plotter lineup is the Raymarine e7 and e7D—the latter of incorporates a built-in digital fishfinder. These units feature a 7-inch display screen, touch screen control combined with knobs and buttons—which the company calls hybridtouch. This series communicates via network, Bluetooth or Wi-Fi.
Marine VHF Radios
The company has a full line of Raymarine VHF radios designed to aesthetically match the current lineup of A-series, C-Series and E-Series chartplotters and accessories. They share a color scheme, knob shape, and bezel design with a number of the company’s multi-function display units.
Radar, Autopilots and More
This marine electronics maker is a full line company that markets radar antennas—both radome and open array— with power ratings starting at 2kW and going all the way up to 12kW. You will also find a lineup of autopilots capable of outfitting everything from a small sailboat to an outlandish sportfisher.
The recent acquisition by FLIR has seen infrared camera technology added to the lineup for display on an MFD or handheld device. The company also markets AIS gear, camera systems, black box sounders and marine weather receivers.
