Marine maritime boats and ships at sea

Maritime & Boating

The maritime, boating and fishing industries all benefit from marine radio systems of different scales. Whether your business operates large shipping boats, cruises, ferries or even small boats for fishing or tourism, you could benefit from a marine radio communications system.

One piece of equipment that no mariner should be without is a marine radio. Not only are they crucial in emergency situations, they also used for contacting ports and other ship to shore requirements. Marine radio is not only useful but is also a vital part of any vessel's safety equipment. There are different types of radio available including desk mounted radios and handheld radios.

Marine radio systems typically include a plethora of safety and navigation features, some of which are established standards at sea and used by many offshore vehicles. Owners of UK pleasure craft of 13.7m in length and over that go to sea, should be aware that communications equipment is mandatory under the Merchant Shipping Regulations. Further regulations include the carriage of AIS navigation systems on large craft over 300 gross tonnage.

Any boatsman at sea can benefit from the use of reliable marine communications. Although mobile phones may be an option, you can't rely on the phone for emergency and distress situations, and they aren't as reliable as VHF transmission when out at sea. Handheld or mounted mobile radios are equipped with several features including DSC (Digital Selective Calling), GPS/AIS, Emergency Alarms, waterproof/bouyancy and more, which make them an essential piece of communications and safety equipment for all types of personnel when travelling near or far from the shore.
