Orlando, FL - Furuno is the proud recipient of six "Product Of Excellence" accolades at the 2023 NMEA Awards ceremony, bringing their total up to an astounding 250 NMEA award victories since 1971! Each year, NMEA members vote for the products they feel should win these prestigious awards. Membership in the NMEA is reserved for dealers, distributors, industry experts, and NMEA-approved technicians, and their continued votes of confidence for Furuno products is a testament to their reputation for excellence and reliability among marine professionals and boaters worldwide.
The highly coveted 2023 Best New Product award was awarded to Furuno's newest addition, the FCV800 Fish Finder. The FCV800 features dual transducer ports for the simultaneous use of both CHIRP and CW channels. Sought-after features such as Bottom Discrimination and ACCU-FISH Fish Size Analyzer can be combined with TruEcho CHIRP’s frequency-modulated signal to deliver those Furuno-exclusive features while providing better resolution for targets on the screen. New Sunlight and Yellow color palettes make the display easy to see in bright daylight, and Furuno’s Color Range Expansion broadens the range of discrete signals detected so reefs, structure, and fish near the seabed are shown in slightly separated colors. The FCV800 also includes a built-in wireless network, so a second display can be installed at a remote location, such as the stern or tower. It can even connect wirelessly to the TZ iBoat and NavNet Viewer apps on your handheld device.
Furuno's incomparable DFF3D Multibeam Sonar continues to dominate the "Product of Excellence" category for Best Fish Finder. The DFF3D takes fish finding to new depths, providing a 3-dimensional, 120-degree view of fish and structure from port to starboard. With PBG (Personal Bathymetric Generator), boaters can create their own shaded relief bathymetric charts wherever they travel. Features like Follow-it, allowing anglers to instantly create a constant-depth route along the ridges the DFF3D charts and send it to the Autopilot, are continuously added to the NavNet TZtouch3 software. Frequent improvements are a part of Furuno's dedication to providing fishermen with the tools they need to improve their operations with new and exciting techniques in ways no other Fish Finder can duplicate.
Furuno's DRS4DNXT took home the top honor in the Best Radar category. The DRS4DNXT is a Solid-State Doppler Radar in a compact 24" radome featuring tested and proven Furuno technologies such as Target Analyzer™, Fast Target Tracking, and RezBoost Beam Sharpening.
The SCX20 Satellite Compass was recognized by the judges as the Best NMEA2000 Sensor. Its unique four-antenna design makes this rugged Satellite Compass capable of calculating precise heading, pitch, roll, and heave information, even when line of sight is limited to only a single satellite.
Furuno's FAR2228NXTBB Radar continued its three-year winning streak by bringing home the "Product of Excellence" award in the Commercial category. This 600 Watt Solid-State IMO Radar is the culmination of Furuno's decades of innovation, showcasing Furuno features such as Automatic Clutter Elimination (ACE), Fast Target Tracking, and a familiar but fresh user interface.
Furuno's CSH8LMK2 Omni Sonar took home its third consecutive win in the Marine Specialty category. A must-have tool in the serious sport fisherman’s arsenal, this mid-frequency Sonar detects fish schools and individual fish 360 degrees around the vessel, displaying their distribution as well as the seabed conditions in 16 colors. The CSH8LMK2 has made a lasting impression on commercial markets and the tournament circuit as the perfect solution for midwater trawlers, purse seiners, and serious sportfishing vessels.
