Garmin marine electronics selected exclusively for Bavaria Yachts


Bavaria image2 As boat show season continues at full speed ahead, Garmin today announced that Bavaria Yachts, one of the world’s leading yacht manufacturers, has selected Garmin to be the exclusive electronics supplier to outfit their robust line of sailing and cruising yachts.  This new OEM partnership is being announced in conjunction with the Düsseldorf International Boat Show, January 22-30, 2011, where the first on-board Garmin marine electronics package by Bavaria can be purchased. 

“This announcement demonstrates that Garmin is making great strides in the marine OEM market by becoming the preferred electronics supplier for one of the world’s top yacht manufacturers,” said Engelhard Sundoro, Garmin’s director of marine OEM sales and marketing.  “We are very pleased to be selected by Bavaria, and are confident that our range of innovative and award-winning electronics will meet and exceed the needs of the Bavaria customer.”  

Bavaria has selected a complete Garmin marine electronics package to offer its customers that includes multi-function displays from the GPSMAP 4000 and 5000 series, the GPSMAP 720s with its brilliant 7-inch touchscreen display, Garmin’s GHP 10V autopilot system designed specifically for the Volvo IPS drive, as well as the GMI 10 marine instrument display, which makes it easy to monitor navigation, heading and environmental data.  Bavaria Yachts is the first marine OEM to offer its customers the new, award-winning GHP 12 sailboat autopilot system which is designed for 20- to 70-foot sailboats with linear-actuated steering systems.

Bavaria Yachts is among several new OEM contracts Garmin has won recently.  In 2011, Garmin has also added Ranger Tugs, Cutwater Boats and Broom Boats to its growing roster of marine OEMs.
