Raymarine introduce new lines at Southampton

7th July 2009

Raymarine will be showcasing a range of new products at the PSP Southampton Boat Show (stand G088).


The ST70 Plus (pictured below) is Raymarine‘s latest generation of instrument and pilot display systems. With large, high visibility LCD’s, ST70 Plus offers a new way of displaying and managing data, and is the perfect partner for Raymarine’s multifunction display systems. The ST70 Plus can be configured as an instrument or autopilot display. Managed via a dedicated remote control keypad, the 6.5 inch (164mm) screen is fully customisable with multiple options for screen set up, colour palette and offers remarkable quality day and night viewing.


Also new at the show will be the AIS500 (above). This transceiver allows users to both transmit to, and receive, AIS data to and from vessels in the area, as well as to shore-based traffic centres. A dedicated GPS sensor ensures highly accurate position data is broadcast, while proximity alerts are a key safety feature for boaters. The AIS500 also has a unique ‘Buddy Tracking’ system, allowing users to distinguish known targets from others by using unique on-screen icons and names.

Raymarine now has a satellite TV antenna aimed at smaller boats with the launch of the new 33STV at the show. Extremely compact, lightweight and easy to install, the 33STV offers maximum performance in a small footprint.  The compact dome automatically tracks and received satellite TV signals in almost any condition, guaranteeing quick, clear, reliable access to hundreds of digital channels.

Anyone wanting to learn more about the latest on board technology will be pleased to know Raymarine can offer help.  The company will be launching its new series of training courses for electronic navigation at the show. The radar courses organised by Raymarine and held across the UK this year have proved extrememely popular and led to customer requests for further courses, Raymarine has responded to this demand and developed an electronic navigation course, aimed at those wanting to learn more about using multinfunction displays as an aid to their navigation. Full details of the courses and locations will be available at Southampton Boat Show. Team
