Furuno honored at NMEA convention

Marine electronics manufacturer Furuno said it received several awards at the recent National Marine Electronics Association convention.

Furuno received the manufacturer of the year - support award for the sixth consecutive year.

“Customer service to both our technical marine electronics dealer network and our end users has always been the No. 1 goal at Furuno USA. We are extremely proud to be able to offer products that are extremely reliable and customer support that makes customers feel secure in their purchase,” company president Jim Atteridge said in a statement.

Furuno’s NavNet 3-D won NMEA awards in two major categories: best radar and best navigation. For the fifth straight year Furuno took home the NMEA award in the best navigation category for the NavNet 3D MFD12; Furuno’s FCV295 was named best fishfinder.

The company also received an award in the marine specialty category.

Furuno has won 201 NMEA awards since the association began to present them in 1971.
