Fluid Motion, designers and builders of Ranger Tugs, announced that Garmin International will be the exclusive electronics supplier to outfit its full line of cruising tugs, including the new Cutwater Boats model.

This new OEM partnership is being announced in advance of the Seattle Boat Show, where the first Cutwater Boats will debut.

"Fluid Motion can now offer its customers an intuitive, easy-to-use navigation experience that complements their cruising needs," said Engelhard Sundoro, Garmin director of marine OEM sales and marketing, in a statement.

"Garmin is pleased to work with a quality builder such as Fluid Motion and is confident that whether Ranger Tugs or Cutwater customers are looking for adventure at sea or just have a passion for cruising the coast, they'll enjoy stress-free navigation that comes from having a Garmin system on board and peace of mind knowing Garmin has a worldwide support network in place," he added.

Fluid Motion has been installing Garmin equipment on its Ranger Tugs boats since 2006 and, with the launch of Cutwater Boats, it was a natural progression to work with Garmin as the exclusive OEM partner for both lines, the company said.
