Fusion Electronics signed a four-year contract with the American Boatbuilders Association.

Under the terms of the agreement, Fusion is an approved and preferred supplier of choice for the independent boatbuilders buying group through 2016.

ABA members that include Regal, Monterey, Grady-White, Correct Craft and Godfrey currently offer Fusion stereos as standard equipment, but the partnership adds Cobalt, Chaparral, Formula, Rinker, Stingray, Pursuit and Ebbtide boats.

Fusion’s marine audio suite will provide ABA builders’ buyers with an iPod integration unit that conceals an iPod in its waterproof body and a marine stereo with Fusion-Link that provides access, control and communication with multifunction displays, remotes and compatible screens, as well as the Apple iPad or iPhone, and various Android products.

“We are proud to be the preferred choice of the ABA for its high-quality independent boatbuilder members,” Fusion Electronics’ Todd Crocker said in a statement. “Our performance marine systems were engineered to revolutionize control of onboard entertainment and enhance the way boaters listen to their stereos on the water.”
