75 Great Boating  Destinations

75 Great  Boating  Destinations

 

Simrad® turns 75 this year, and what better way to celebrate than to recognize 75 amazing places around the world! A bucket list of sorts for the powerboating, sport fishing and luxury yachting enthusiasts around the world, selected in a poll of favourite spots by our team around the world.

 

The poll asked product and boating experts to nominate their favourite powerboating and sportfishing locations, which were then narrowed down to a final selection of 75.  

The focus was on small-town departure points for offshore cruising or specific small bodies of water or islands that make for a unique and special boating experience. The final list did not disappoint, ranging from the cooler climates of Antarctica to the Y-shaped archipelago of Vanuatu - and everything in between.  

 

The U.S. topped the list with 11 selections, while Australia and New Zealand each featured six. Countries in the Mediterranean also featured prominently, including France, Greece, Italy and Spain.   

To give you a visual flavour of the different locations, we’ve grabbed a cross-section of  pictures. The full list of 75 locations follows in the table below. Head over to our Facebook page and join the discussion as we continue the conversation with our fans around the world.
