Navico signs deal with Bavaria Yachts

Electronics manufacturer Navico and Bavaria Yachts have formed a new partnership in which B&G and Simrad chart plotters will be standard equipment on the German manufacturer’s sailboats and powerboats.

“Navico is very proud of this collaboration with Bavaria Yachts and will continue to work with them to provide the best equipment available to sailing and powerboat enthusiasts,” Navico CEO Leif Ottosson said in a statement.

The B&G Zeus plotter will be on the Bavaria Yachts C57 and C65.

The new Bavaria R55 powerboat is now equipped with Simrad’s NSS evo3 and Simrad 4G radar. It also has the SolarMAX HD screen and the radar includes a beam-sharpening control for improved target separation and detection.

Track, which is designed to deliver a connected vessel solution for onboard information, will come on two Bavaria catamarans, the Nautitech 40 Open and the Nautitech 46 Open. It provides data that include engine rpm, temperatures and pressures, fuel consumption, water depth, boat speed, heading, wind speed and direction. The information can be seen through the Track website on a computer, smartphone or tablet.

In addition to the navigation equipment, the C57, C65, R55 and Nautitech 40 Open will have a Naviop engine and electrics monitoring system. It can work as an integration hub or a digital switching system to manage equipment such as engines, air conditioning and stabilizers.
