A BET­TER VI­SION

SAIL - - Gear -

Ves­per Marine’s Watch­mate se­ries has long been the gold stan­dard for user-friendly AIS dis­plays, and the new Watch­mate Vi­sion2 transpon­der im­proves an al­ready fine prod­uct that not only dis­plays AIS data, but can be con­nected to up to eight de­vices, in­clud­ing smart­phones, lap­tops and MFDs, via its built-in Wi-Fi. The touch­screen dis­play is IPX7 wa­ter­proof and can be mounted above or be­lowdeck. It not only shows ves­sel data, but warns you of pos­si­ble col­li­sion sit­u­a­tions and acts as an an­chor alarm and (if the crew wears AIS MOB de­vices) man-overboard lo­ca­tor. In short, it’s an ideal ac­ces­sory for both coastal cruis­ing and ocean­go­ing boats. $1,249. Ves­per Marine, ves­per­ma­rine.com
