Chart Plotters

A chart plotter is an invaluable tool that will help you to plan and navigate your vessel safely, whether you’re exploring coastal rivers and estuaries or crossing oceans. Chart plotters give you all the information you need to navigate confidently anywhere in the world with a clear understanding of local hazards, tides and pilotage information.

The Fox’s Electronics team is perfectly placed to offer advice on buying a new chart plotter from one of the industry’s leading manufacturers and will be happy to highlight and explain their safe and proper use, detailing any limitations as well as provide installation and/or service and repair of your existing chart plotter both on or off site.

Electronic Instruments

Although when you’re sailing a small day boat or a dinghy, you might well be used to assessing the wind speed and direction, boat speed and even depth of water without the need for any electronic instruments, when it comes to competitive sailing and on any larger vessel, electronic instruments offer an essential aid to your senses.

From simple, stand alone depth information, to complete packages that supply combined wind, speed and depth information, interfaced to GPS and other navigational equipment, accurate electronic instruments will help with safe and efficient navigation and significantly enhance your whole boating experience. We can recommend, source, supply, fit, and service high performance instrument displays from all of the leading manufacturers, to meet any boating requirement.

Marine Radar

For both recreational and commercial sailors, marine radars offer another layer of information, particularly when combined with other data, providing a complete overview and assisting with both collision avoidance and navigation in all weathers. Although radar units were once only found on larger vessels, today they are compact, energy efficient, and designed to fit on the smallest power boats and sailing yachts.

At Fox’s Electronics, we can supply, install, diagnose, and repair radar systems from the industry’s leading manufacturers. For optimum performance, your radar system should be combined with an AIS and a chart plotter. Our dedicated Marine Electronics team can also advise on this equipment and any other electronic interfacing issues.

Automated Identification Systems (AIS)

Automatic Identification Systems (AIS) are automatic tracking systems that are now used on all shipping and by Vessel Traffic Services (VTS) to identify and locate vessels. These devices work by electronically exchanging data with other nearby ships and AIS base stations. When combined with satellite and radar information they provide significant assistance with collision avoidance.

Allowing you to see the location, track, current course and speed of other AIS users, and providing your information to them, in real time, the AIS is widely believed to be the most significant development in navigation safety since the introduction of the radar.

At Fox’s Electronics, we can help you to identify and install the best AIS system for your needs and budget and also offer interfacing, survey, diagnostic, and repair services for AIS systems from many leading manufacturers.

Marine Communications

Bringing together radio, telephone and satellite infrastructure, Maritime Communications now enable quick, safety-critical and general communication for all.

From waterproof, handheld VHF radios, to go anywhere satellite telephone systems, the Fox’s Marine Electronics team has a great deal of experience when it comes to marine communications systems, allowing us to accurately and effectively advise you on the best systems to meet your needs.

We offer state-of-the-art communication systems for yachting, commercial vessels, and more.

Our multi-skilled in-house team can also install, service and repair your Marine Communications system to ensure it is always performing to the optimum level.

Stepping aboard your boat doesn’t mean that you have to leave your home comforts behind. With increasingly state-of-the-art Marine Entertainment systems available, it is now possible to kit your vessel out with the latest technology.
