Sea Hunt Boat Company has selected Garmin International as electronics supplier to outfit its line of center-console boats ranging from 18 to 30 feet. Sea Hunt will offer many Garmin electronics packages, including the new GPSMap 1242xsv Touch chartplotter/sonar all-in-one combo unit. Garmin and Sea Hunt showcased the GPSMap 1242 Touch series for the first time at the Progressive Insurance Miami International Boat Show.

“It’s an honor to join the Sea Hunt family,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of global consumer sales, in a statement. “From family boaters to tournament anglers, we’re confident that Sea Hunt customers will appreciate having Garmin electronics on board thanks in part to the industry-leading features, ease-of-use and superior quality and service our products are known for.”

Bubba Roof, president of Sea Hunt Boat Company, added, “Sea Hunt Boat Company is proud to welcome Garmin marine electronics to the Sea Hunt family for our 2018 model year. We believe in giving our customers the best available options and features in the industry and Garmin provides the perfect combination of leading technology and user friendliness that our customers desire.”

Sea Hunt will be factory-installing Garmin electronics packages including the 12-inch 1242xsv Touch. It comes preloaded with BlueChart g2 charts and LakeVu HD maps and features built-in 1kW traditional CHIRP sonar and CHIRP ClearVu and CHIRP SideVu scanning sonar capability. It offers full networking capabilities including radar so customers can add to a system with accessories like VHF radios. The 1242xsv also offers built-in Wi-Fi so it can be paired with the Garmin ActiveCaptain app.
