Break out the sunscreen and dust off your lifejacket, it’s boat show season! Nothing makes this more apparent than the jam-packed event calendar on the boatshows.com website. The month of February is filled with shows all across the US, Canada and Europe. Heck, there’s even a boat show in the middle of Iowa, so it’s clear that people really love their recreational watercrafts.
These shows offer everything from $300 kayaks to yachts that can cost more than $1 million. However, their real purpose is to display and promote the latest in boating technology. Today’s demanding and educated consumers are surrounded by technology 24-7, from smartphones, to internet enabled TV’s, to cars that have more computing power than the space shuttle. Therefore, it is only natural that they expect their boats to come with advanced options and expanded functionality.
There’s no doubt that boating is one of the more challenging leisure activates out there. Water, be it in a lake, river, or ocean, is rarely forgiving. To guarantee a high level of safety and comfort, you have to make sure that you have the latest and most reliable electronic gear. The days of hopping in a rowboat with little more than a transistor radio and a fishing rod are no longer the norm. The marine experts at Etratech understand these modern needs and demands. We design and manufacture many of the innovative electronic controls that make your boating experience safer and more enjoyable.
Etratech provides the marine sector with everything from pump controls, to transmitters and receivers to navigation and fish-finder controls components. All of our cost-effective control components are resistant to vibration and environmental conditions, which comes in handy because Mother Nature can be quite unpredictable.
So, as you stroll through the aisles of your local boat show, just remember that the experts at Etratech played a role in designing, engineering, and producing many of the high-quality switches, timers, and instrument panel controls that make this year’s models safe, more interactive, and just plain cool.
