RAYMARINE TEAMS UP WITH MARINAS.COM
New collaboration means Raymarine LightHouse Charts now include better points of interest
Raymarine has announced that its LightHouse Charts Premium service now includes points-of-interest data provided by Marinas.com, one of the world’s best single-source providers of marina and waterway information for boaters on the web.
The collaboration, which pulls data from more than 75,000 marine locations, enables boaters to easily find and explore key inlets, marinas, waterfront communities, lighthouses, and other nautical destinations.
LightHouse Charts offer Raymarine Axiom and Element owners a new level of clarity and customisation, making it easy to identify and explore the expansive points-of-interest locations from Marinas.com. Raymarine users and all boaters can also use booking apps like Dockwa –Marinas.com’s sister brand – to reserve slips at those locations.
“We are laser-focused on creating innovative tools to connect boaters with marinas in real-time,” says Mike Melillo, CEO of Dockwa and Marinas.com. “Marinas.com has long been a valued planning tool for boaters, and our new partnership with Raymarine is one exciting example of how we’re constantly expanding those resources.
”Our goal is to make it easier for boaters to research float plans, reserve dock space, and get the services they want and need. We’re constantly broadening our selection of marina partners, which helps expedite the administrative side of boating but also enables the marina industry to meet boaters where they are, technologically speaking.”
Marinas.com claims to have the world’s most extensive database of marine locations, featuring marinas, harbors, key inlets, detailed overviews of waterfront communities, bridges, locks, anchorages, and lighthouses, along with other major nautical points of interest.
