Garmin echoMAP for Thames Ribs

We are very proud of our fleet of Ribs and make sure they are well maintained and up to date for their work on the Thames. Some of this involves rib charters for corporate events or private groups and some is for commercial work such as crew transfers and surveys.

This year we are updating the electronics on our Rib Fleet with brand new echoMAP CHIRP 55cv Garmin chart plotters.

Garmin chart plotters are secondary navigational aids, they’re used for cross checking any route planning and ensure that you are staying true to your planned passage. They also have a depth gauge which is useful for keeping yourself away from dangerously low water areas, or again to cross check where you are on a chart.  

We have used Garmin electronics for many years and it’s hard to fault standard of equipment they produce. Easy to install, straightforward and intuitive to use – we like them.
