FarSounder has debuted a new sonar and a new name for its series of 3D forward-looking navigation sonars; the systems are featured on many new expedition ships.
“With the company’s continued growth and focus on research and development, it was time to give the series a name and offer more alternatives. The new name is the Argos series and are now 3 models in the series,” the company announced.
The latest model the Argos 350 will be revealed for the first time at Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS).
This new sonar option has all the same applications and quality found in its other navigational sonars. It has been designed with a smaller and lighter transducer and will have a 350 meter range of detection.
It is well-suited for mid-sized yachts from 18 – 40+ meters.
As in its other two models the Argos 1000 and Argos 500, the design allows for an easy, fixed installation.
The Argos 350 however offers another alternative as well. It can be connected to a hoist in a 10-inch diameter sea chest.
“The creative FarSounder team has worked tirelessly to provide a smaller and lower-cost solution for mid-sized vessels. This was a goal of ours for many years,” FarSounder’s CEO, Cheryl M. Zimmerman, explains. “Ultimately, we are elated to bring our forward-looking sonar to a wider market without compromising on the quality our customers have come to expect from our innovative Forward Looking Sonar systems.”
