Raymarine utilised by Princess, Prestige and Spirit Yachts

Flir Systems’ Raymarine brand electronics have been selected by premium yacht builders Princess Yachts, Prestige and Spirit Yachts for inclusion on their 2020 new model launches.

Raymarine says its products have long been the preferred choice for leading luxury yacht manufacturers ‘thanks to ease-of-use, rugged design, and reliability’.

The recently introduced Princess Yachts X95, utilises Raymarine’s Axiom XL multifunction navigation displays (MFD) with chartplotting, radar, 3D sonar, autopilot, instrumentation, and engine data displayed across three 19-inch Axiom XL screens.

Raymarine Axiom XL systems are standard equipment on Princess Yachts in Europe, the Middle East and Asia, along with a full range of Raymarine sensors and peripherals.

“Over the years, we have established a collaborative relationship with the team at Raymarine and we consult on a regular basis when looking at new innovations for our product line,” says Nick Smith, head of product planning at Princess Yachts. “The service they offer us supports both our manufacturing operations, and our dealer network has always been a key advantage of working with Raymarine.”

Spirit Yachts’ eco-friendly Spirit 111 sailing superyacht and fuel-efficient P70 motor yacht have both just been delivered to their respective customers with a full complement of Raymarine products on board. As with Princess, Spirit routinely equips its yachts with a range of Raymarine Axiom MFDs, i70 instruments, Evolution autopilots, and p70 SmartPilot control heads, lightweight and energy-efficient Quantum CHIRP radar systems, FLIR M300 and M400 thermal imaging cameras, and CAM220 IP cameras.

Finally, the new Prestige X70, a vessel created in the spirit of a superyacht, has been launched with a comprehensive suite of Raymarine electronics. Three Axiom XL 16-inch MFDs provide navigation at the X70 main helm, while two Axiom XL 19-inch MFDs deliver at the flybridge helm station. The entire system is networked and provides X70 customers with touch-screen access to chartplotting, radar, sonar, and autopilot controls. The X70 will be one of the first Prestige Yachts to offer Raymarine’s DockSense Alert assisted docking technology. Using FLIR machine vision camera technology, DockSense Alert provides smart audible and visible alerts to inform the captain when an object is close to the vessel, which is said to greatly simplify the entire docking experience.
