McMurdo Smartfind M5 AIS Class A Transponder $2,499

By: Melissa Park

The user-friendly and easily installed AIS Class A Transponder from McMurdo Marine allows boaters to see all of the AIS-equipped boats around them, increasing safety. It can also help in a man-overboard situation, with an onscreen beacon location indicator and an audible alarm to help accelerate rescue efforts. It includes a “buddy list” feature that identifies the specific individual needing MOB assistance. The color-display transponder also details critical navigation information, such as the number, type, position, course and speed of surrounding vessels in the area.
