As a sailor, John Drake (Captain, ASA instructor, and NMEA installer) is especially proud to represent Brooks and Gatehouse (B&G). B&G provides a complete suite of integrated navigation equipment focused on sailing. They were chosen to be aboard all of the 2015-16 Volvo Ocean Race boats and many Vendee Globe race boats. B&G dominates the European market for sailboat racing and luxury sailing yachts.
B&G's Parent company, Navico, also owns Lowrance and Simrad. The resulting development efforts are encouraging. The well-respected Simrad autopilot, for example, responds to B&G's clever Sail-Steer functionality. For the last three years Navico has been combining the best from each brand to provide a full networked solution that rivals and surpasses the industry in terms of hardware, software, and end user functionality. Best of all, the prices are now competitive with other major brands.
Whether seeking a competitive start or the reliability to take you over the horizon, let Drake Marine Services (of Amelia Island) demo B&G gear, guide you through the purchasing process, deliver competitive pricing, install, and support to maintain top operating efficiency.
