Navico – the world's largest manufacturer of marine electronics and parent company to the Lowrance®, Simrad® and B&G® brands – announced today the finalization of an agreement to acquire Naviop, a global leader in marine monitoring and control systems.

Providing the integration framework to capture data from all boating systems, Naviop creates a digital ecosystem on boats outfitted with Simrad, Lowrance and B&G marine electronics, with the multifunction display serving as the hub for complete system control and information – all designed to enhance boater awareness and enjoyment.

"We are pleased to welcome Naviop to the Navico family," said Leif Ottosson, Navico CEO.

"For years, auto manufacturers have provided consumers with a complete integration solution at their fingertips, and we, as a marine industry have fallen behind the curve to provide the same level of convenience and control. With Naviop, we have taken a step forward to provide a comprehensive system-integration package for the boatbuilding market – a position that is already well-received with many of our boatbuilding customers. Most importantly, these fully integrated marine-electronics systems will enhance the boating experience by making it easier to be an owner and by increasing enjoyment on the water."

Stay tuned to the Lowrance Facebook page @LowranceUK from 19th – 24th June to see all the latest highlights live from the competition. Team Lowrance Europe will be publishing live video on the water, along with a daily video diary. There will even be the chance to take part in a competition to win a brand NEW HDS Carbon 9" fishfinder/chartplotter.
