NMEA releases cost-analysis brochure

Posted on

Buying marine electronics from a discounter could lead to unexpected expenses.

That’s according to the National Marine Electronics Association, which has created a brochure to educate boaters about the possible hidden costs of purchasing marine electronics based on price alone.

The guide points out that although buying marine electronics from a mass marketer could be cheaper initially than buying from a dealer with trained technicians, the overall cost could turn out to be much greater for the cheaper electronics because of unanticipated repairs, reworking, or replacement later on.

The trade group says boaters should instead rely on NMEA-trained technicians for advice and installation, and companies that employ them for service and warranty support.

A free copy of “A Guide to Boating Electronics: What You Should Know When Buying Electronics for Your Boat,” is available at www.nmea.org.
