West MarinePlease join West Marine at the Miami International Boat Show on Thursday, February 13, 2014 for a press conference at 10:00 a.m. at the West Marine booth in the center pod, upper level.

West Marine CEO Matt Hyde will announce new initiatives for 2014, plus Ron Japinga EVP of Merchandising, along with vendor partners will demonstrate our West Advisors Top Picks for 2014, including:

Simrad Chartplotter NSS9 Evo2 Multi-touch MFD: The NSS evo2 combines form, fit and function in an easy-to-use multifunction device. The integrated NSS evo2 MFD features a sleek display with TouchSensibleTM multi-touch interaction. TouchSensible, provides precision interaction in any sea condition with its logical keypad input and rotary, push-to-enter knob.

Paddle Craft SUP: The Paddle Craft stand-up paddleboard (SUP) is the result of 3 years of development and introduces the patented construction method, thermoSUP™. Designed and engineered by Open Air dynamics, the Paddle Craft features the durable and impact resistant material, ABS, for the shell, a honeycomb waterproof foam core, displacement hull, attachment plugs and 3/4 length deck pad. Weighing only 31 pounds, the 12' x 31.5? Paddle Craft has a capacity of over 300 lbs.

Northstar Pure Lead Modular 8D Battery SMS-AGM8Dk: Never before has a battery manufacturer so cleverly engineered an 8D battery that has both the user and installer in mind. Its pure lead design allows for high cranking power and deep cycling capabilities. Pure lead technology also prevents the plates from sulfating; the number one cause of battery failure. Northstar Battery Co. has developed a kit where 3 group size 24 batteries are assembled in parallel within the install location.

Cayman 11.5 Sit-On-Top Angler Kayak: Designed for the angler, this kayak is rich in features and versatility.  It offers an extremely stable platform for standing while casting, with enough buoyancy to support up to 500 pounds. Unique “double-decker” seat provides a low position for paddling and a high position or fishing as well as a stand-up assist strap.  Features include: four molded-in rod holders behind seat, molded-in gear trays and accessory attachment areas, mid-ship hatch and bow deck plate hull storage access, and pre-installed anchor trolley system.  There’s even a ruler molded into the side deck to help you measure your catch!

Third Reef Jacket and Pant: The best selling foul weather gear in the world just got better.  West Marine's new generation of Third Reef foul weather gear features fully lined, 100% water proof and breathable, Oxford nylon fabric, fleece-lined tall collar, bright neon yellow hood for visibility, and more.


Fraser Optics - Stedi-Eye 14 x 40mm Monolite Binoculars: For every vessel in any body of water, Fraser Optics’ Mariner Series 14x40mm Gyro-Stabilized Monolite delivers the clear advantage. Military grade, lightweight Monolite is the world’s only gyro-stabilized monocular and removes up to 98% of image motion caused by hand or platform movement. The Monolite is engineered using Fraser Optics’ STEDI-EYE® Technology. Safety and performance should never be sacrificed; Fraser Optics delivers proven, tested performance that you can trust.

West Marine – Portable Batter Chargers: “Smart" battery charging in a lightweight, portable design These chargers provide precise “permanent mount” charger features in a lightweight, fully portable design. Most of the portable chargers we’ve tested have been poorly regulated, not automatic, and potentially damaging to quality batteries. We started with an excellent high-frequency power supply design, and added “smarts” so you can alter the charge voltages depending on the chemistry of your batteries and their temperature. This provides nine voltage combinations to ensure the fastest, most complete charge without damaging gel cell or AGM batteries.

Garmin Virb Elite, Action Camera with Wi-Fi & GPS & the Quatix Watch:
The VIRB Elite is a true HD action camera that combines enhanced HD video recording with Wi-Fi capability and advanced GPS functions.  Plus, the VIRB Elite uses ANT+™ wireless connectivity to enable you to use your Quatix watch or smart phone as a remote control. Stop or start recording with your Virb or take still images wirelessly with your watch.
