Seawork exhibitor Mantsbrite Marine Electronics has been appointed as the UK distributor for Onwa Marine electronics.

Products covered include combined Class B AIS/chartplotters, chartplotters, combined chartplotter/echo sounders and a black box Class B AIS transponder.

Onwa manufacture what is believed to be a unique range of AIS/chartplotters with a built in Class B AIS transponder. There is a choice of 5.6”, 8” or 12.1” screens and a free preloaded Onwa UK & Ireland K-chart is included, the Onwa range is also compatible with C-MAP MAX charts on SD card if required. There are a variety of information displays and users can choose from a chart display with AIS targets overlaid, AIS display or other navigation associated displays. Once the vessel details are programmed, the AIS data will be transmitted to other AIS equipped vessels. AIS transmissions from other vessels will be received and overlaid onto the ONWA display. There is an AIS guard zone facility with Closest Point of Approach and Time to Closest Point of Approach alarms. There is also a silent mode function where the unit will still continue to receive and display AIS targets but will stop transmitting the user’s vessel details.

Normal chart plotter navigation and safety functions such as MOB, 12,000 waypoints / 30 routes, tide tables etc. are as standard.

“The Onwa products we have chosen are tried, tested and represent excellent value for money,” said David Ash, Mantsbrite’s Managing Director, “Vessel operators can now have a Class B AIS transponder WITH chartplotter for not much more than the cost of a normal chartplotter, there are great savings to be made and user feedback on units already shipped has been excellent”.

UK prices are as follows;

KP-6299A Class B AIS/Chartplotter with 5.6” colour display                          £780.00 ex VAT

KP-8299A Class B AIS/Chartplotter with 8” colour display                              £899.00 ex VAT
