Australian fishing-boat builder Bar Crusher said it is now offering Raymarine as preferred factory-fitted marine electronics equipment on every model in the builder’s range.

The company said its decision follows rigorous testing of Raymarine products in its boats during the past 12 months.

Bar Crusher director Peter Cleland said every product used in the boats was carefully considered before it was released on the market.

"The advanced technology, functionality and durability of Raymarine products is outstanding, which is a great fit with our expectations and those of Bar Crusher owners," Cleland said in a statement.

"Our customers like the way the electronics perform — the fishfinder [sonar] technology is particularly impressive — and the fact Raymarine has a three-year warranty on Bar Crusher factory-fitted electronics, which is further backed by a national network of certified service technicians to offer an unrivalled level of support.”
