Canal Boat - - What's New -

LIS­TEN­ING TO THE sounds of na­ture is a real plea­sure when out cruis­ing, but a lit­tle mu­sic’s good too some­times. You can, of course, sim­ply plug in the iPod, but that’s a bit iso­lat­ing so we reckon this new portable radio from Fu­sion is just about right for a boat (or any­where near water).

Not only is the sound fab­u­lous (it should be, Fu­sion makes all sorts of top-end marine ra­dios) it’s also prop­erly wa­ter­proof and it floats ( just in case…). What’s more, you won’t dis­turb oth­ers out on the cut be­cause the 40W speak­ers di­rect the sound straight back to you and not every­one else.

As well as a stan­dard radio, you can stream au­dio via Blue­tooth from ser­vices such as Pan­dora or Spotify and a USB port al­lows you to plug in a flash drive for MP3 play­back. It’s not the cheap­est good radio out there, but it is to­tally wa­ter­proof (which counts for a lot), it looks good inside or out­side, and the sound qual­ity is ex­cel­lent. A great piece of boat kit.
