High Performance Sales Group to Represent Award-Winning AIS technology to Boat Builders, Distributors and Dealers

Auckland, New Zealand – Vesper Marine, a leading manufacturer of innovative marine safety products, announced today that Gulf Atlantic Marketing will be their sales representative for the Southern States and Gulf Coast. Vesper Marine is experiencing growing demand for quality commercial and recreational AIS transponders in the U.S. market.

“A highly respected sales group for quality equipment, we are very pleased to partner with Gulf Atlantic,” said Jason Young, Vesper Marine's VP Sales for Americas. “Their depth of knowledge and understanding of customer networks has been a key driver for sales of Gulf Atlantic brands. Neal Trombley and his Gulf Atlantic Marketing team have extensive industry experience that will provide Vesper Marine closer engagement with our dealer network, OEM boat builders and marine electrical contractors.”

“We are very excited about our partnership with Vesper Marine,” says Trombley, “This innovative New Zealand company is well known for excellent products and has fantastic customer service and technical support. We are confident we can help make Vesper Marine smartAIS an even greater success.”

An active system with smart alarm logic, smartAIS from Vesper Marine proactively alert boaters of potentially hazardous situations. Unlike other transponders that simply send and receive AIS data, Vesper Marine’s smartAIS transponders continuously calculate crossing situations and trigger collision avoidance alarms, plot anchor position to alert the crew of anchor dragging and trigger alarms for immediate man overboard (MOB) retrieval. An extensible platform, smartAIS offers customers new features and capabilities through regular software updates, delivered automatically via a smart phone and the WatchMate App.
