Garmin International’s Fusion Entertainment is introducing the MS-RA60, an entry-level marine stereo priced less than $200.

“With the new MS-RA60 on board, boaters can enjoy the look and feel of a premium marine stereo without breaking the bank,” Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of global consumer sales, said in a statement.

Bartel said the compact radio is the “perfect fit for boats with limited space at the helm, from pontoons to small fishing boats.”

The weather-resistant stereo has an anti-fogging, daylight-readable display and wireless connectivity with Bluetooth controlled by the Fusion-Link app. Class D amplification powers up to four speakers.

A built-in DAB tuner, a first for Fusion stereos, allows boaters to tune into more frequencies than AM or FM radio.

The MS-RA60 stereo will be available in the second quarter at an MSRP of $199.99.
