Raymarine is making an addition into the performance sailing market with the launch of the Alpha™ Series display, new Smart Wind™ Technology, and performance sailing upgrades to the LightHouse operating system for Axiom chartplotters.
This powerful combination of electronic charting, next-generation precision wind monitoring, and touchscreen tactical displays elevates the awareness of skippers through intuitive, dynamic sailing displays on both the chartplotter and the remote Alpha Series display.
Grégoire Outters, General Manager at Raymarine said: “With an ever-evolving demand in the sailing sector for intuitive solutions, and with Raymarine holding a rich heritage in sailing electronics with proven performance, it was a natural fit for us to offer new developments in this industry. The Alpha Series offers cutting-edge technology packed with powerful intelligence, providing sailors with market-leading sailing support.”
The Alpha Series Displays
7- and 9-inch-high visibility tactical touchscreen instruments with a fully customizable dashboard and graphic displays to help you make smarter sailing decisions. Designed for helm or mast mounting, the Alpha Series is controlled and customized via touchscreen or remotely from a Raymarine Axiom chartplotter. The Alpha Series displays can be mounted in portrait or landscape and only require a single cable for data and power.
