Simrad Yachting - a leader in the design and manufacture of world-class marine navigation, autopilots, radars, communications and fishfinding systems - has announced Dubai-based marine navigation and communications company, Japan Marine General Trading, as its exclusive distributor of Simrad leisure products.
Japan Marine, founded in 2001, will be supplying the full range of Simrad leisure products throughout the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region including new products such as the BSM-2 Broadband Sounderª module; the
NSO Offshore navigation system and the new NSE 2.0 navigation system.

He added: "We continue to invest heavily in research and development in order to be the first to bring revolutionary technology to the market. Japan Marine is an extremely strong distributing partner with an excellent track-record in the region. Now we have them on board, we have a real opportunity to increase our share in this rapidly increasing market."
Simrad has a network of global distributors in more than 100 countries.
Mohammed Al Mazouqi, Japan Marine CEO, said: "Simrad is a leader in the design and manufacture of world-class marine navigation and this appointment is a great honor for Japan Marine, reflecting the hard work and experience of the team."
