Furuno won four National Marine Electronics Association (NMEA) awards at the 2014 NMEA Convention for a total of 212 wins with NMEA. Over the past 43 years, Furuno has received the honor of being the most recognized company in the marine electronics field by the NMEA.

This year, Furuno received the Manufacturer of the Year – Support award for the ninth consecutive year.

“Bringing fresh, new products to the market is certainly an important part of business,” said Jim Atteridge, president of Furuno USA. “But offering excellent customer service is the cornerstone of Furuno’s success. I am proud of the employees we have at Furuno here in the US and around the world and their dedicated service to our customers.”

Furuno also won in the best radar category for the 39 year in a row with the NavNet TZtouch TZTBB with DRS6A Radar. The TZTBB is a Black Box Multi Touch MFD coupled with a 6 kW, 4-foot radar array, which incorporates Furuno’s UHD digital radar processing for ultimate target detection and performance.

The NavNet TZtouch also won in the Best Multi-Function Display Category. Furuno’s FCV587 Fish Finder won as best fish finder.
