Furuno said Thursday that it will host a demonstration boat later this month at the NMEA International Marine Electronics Conference & Expo in Baltimore.

The company said the boat will feature live on-board demonstrations that include the NavNet TZtouch, TZtouch2, FI70 Instruments and NavPilot 711C Autopilots.

The event will be held Sept. 29-Oct. 1 at the Sheraton Inner Harbor Hotel. The exhibits will be open during the first two days of the show.

Furuno said rides on the demo boat will last about 45 minutes and allow time for question and answers. The company encourages registration because it said space is limited.
