Marine electronics leaders, Lowrance and Simrad Yachting are pleased to announce that their award-winning product ranges have been selected to be installed on the high-class range of Haines Hunter fiberglass boats.
Both brands, owned by Navico the world’s largest marine electronics company, have been chosen as a preferred electronics supplier enabling both new and existing Haines Hunter’s customers to choose from a wide range of Lowrance and Simrad configurations to suit their individual needs. The Lowrance suite of electronics will be offered as a standard installation option across the entire range of Haines Hunter boats, with the Simrad range proposed as an exclusive option for the prestigious R-Series Limited model range.
“We are very pleased to work with Lowrance and Simrad and offer our customers an extensive and high quality choice of marine electronics” said John Haber, MD of Haines Hunter. “Haines Hunter boats are synonymous with quality and performance, therefore our alignment with these well-known brands demonstrates to our customers that we really are the best choice. Lowrance is an ideal fit for the Haines Hunter brand as there is something for everyone from the smaller entry level boat to the powerful, larger offshore vessel. Our R-Series Limited range offers genuinely exclusive fittings for the discerning boater and we agree that Simrad is the perfect partner for this luxury range”.
John Scott, COO of Navico Asia Pacific, added that Haines Hunters’ customers will benefit from the superior after-care service for both brands. “We are delighted to partner with Haines Hunter and are confident that customers purchasing Haines Hunter boats will experience the latest technology and extensive warranty options that these brands are renowned for. Customers purchasing either a Lowrance or Simrad product can be assured that they can access up to 5 years of post-purchase support from the manufacturer.
Customers purchasing new Haines Hunter boats are able to select their electronics to be installed at the time of manufacture. However, with the recent establishment of the Haines Hunter After Care Centre, based at Derrimut in Melbourne, existing owners of Haines Hunter boats are able to upgrade their electronics easily as well. Both factory fitted boats and boat upgraded at the After Care Centre will benefit from skilled technicians that have been fully trained in Lowrance and Simrad installations.
Haines Hunter has won many awards for its boat designs along with recognition for manufacturing excellence and sustainable environmental practices. For full details on the 2012 model range, please visit www.haineshunter.com.au.
