NMEA Product of Excellence Awards for 2018
10/1/2018


If you’re researching new electronics for your boat, whether it’s a fishing machine, cruiser or sailboat, the choice of brands, models and functions can be a bit bewildering. The members of the National Marine Electronics Association do something every year that might be helpful. Dealers, manufacturers, distributors, boatyards and a bunch of other marine professionals vote on their favorite electronics. It’s called the Product of Excellence Awards. NMEA vets the votes to prevent a company from “stuffing the ballot box.” 2018 winners were announced at the association’s annual Conference & Expo last week in Palm Beach, FL.

Next week The Mic will pick back up on the series we’ve been running for several weeks---Marine Electronics Journal’s Best & Brightest lineup of boat electronics. That list includes categories and equipment that aren’t part of NMEA’s Product of Excellence rollout. Click HERE to see last week's roster. 

We'll also tell you about another award---the NMEA Technology Award, which celebrates one product that rates highest in innovation, benefit to boaters, practicality and value.

Ten manufacturers took home gold across 17 product categories in the annual Product of Excellence Awards. NMEA members selected the winners by casting their votes online and at the Conference & Expo.
