The Mooloolaba Rotary Rescue has been fitted with Simrad NSS™evo3 displays, Halo® Radar and AP48 Autopilot, expertly installed by Suncoast Marine Electrical in Buddina, QLD. Senior skippers from the Mooloolaba Coastguard were also offered training by Suncoast Marine and Navico personnel to ensure they were up to speed on the latest technology.

Over the past sixty years Simrad has developed systems for the benefit of commercial vessels.
