Furuno has been presented with four awards at the 2014 NMEA Awards in Florida.
Furuno again garnered more awards than any other manufacturer and for the 9th consecutive year was awarded the title of “Manufacturer of the Year – Support”. Furuno is the only manufacturer to have won this award and it is a testament to the dedication by Furuno to uphold outstanding dealer and customer support.
“Best Fishfinder” was awarded to the FCV587. This popular 1kW sounder includes the unique ACCUFISH fish size analyser and also incorporates Post Processing Gain control and Bottom Discrimination Mode, which tells you if the sea floor is made up of sand, mud, gravel or rocks.
Furuno’s winning streak continues unbroken for an unprecedented 39 years in the radar category. The TZTBB with DRS6A UHD radar received the award for “Best Radar”. In yet another highlight the TZT14 won the “Multi-Function Display” category.
A joint press release in July this year cemented the near 50-year relationship between FURUNO Electric. Co. Ltd and ENL with the announcement that Furuno had purchased an initial 10% shareholding in ENL; the largest marine electronics company in NZ.
“We are dedicated to supporting our Furuno Dealer Network in NZ and are especially proud to relay the news of these prestigious NMEA awards,” says Greg Fletcher, ENL National Sales Manager.
