Navico was selected for a competitive award by the USCG for products that met all of their technical needs.

Managing roughly 1,800 boats in 26 different classes (from 23-foot RIB’s to the 47-foot Motor Lifeboat’s), equipped with navigation systems from Furuno and Raymarine, the SBPL boats are assigned to various units within the USCG, such as Maritime Safety and Security Teams (MSST), Coast Guard Stations, Maritime Law Enforcement Academy, and Aids to Navigation Teams (ANT). 
 
“The day-to-day operations of these dedicated professionals require absolute precision and complete trust in their equipment,” said Knut Frostad, CEO, Navico. “We are very proud to have been selected to provide cartography for the United States Coast Guard Small Boat Product Line.”

NAUTISME QUEBEC CANCELS THE 2021 MONTREAL BOAT SHOW

 

Nautisme QuebecSince mid-march, the Alliance de l’industrie nautique du Québec - Nautisme Québec has been devoting time and energy in order to present its main annual event, the Montreal Boat Show.
