YOU GUYS ARE UNREAL !!!!!!!!!!!Bill Haney, S/V The Wanderer, New York (email March 23, 2017)
The shipment was just dropped off now. I ordered it on Tuesday morning and it was delivered on Thursday morning. WE are not located near any large city, we are in a rural area with more dairy cows than people.
I am just shaking my head in awe that a product can be ordered, shipped from NZ and delivered to my front door in upstate New York within basically 2 days.... WOW.

What Our Customers Are Saying...
I am very impressed with the way Vesper are continuously developing functionality rather than developing new models like rabbits, typical of some mainstream suppliers, such that one month after buying the product it is obsolete...Myron Bileckyj, S/V Evening Star (Contest 37), UK (email September 18, 2016)
I can not more highly recommend your product to other sailors.
I purchased a WatchMate specifically for a short handed (2 person crew) voyage from Norfolk VA USA to Turkey. Based on this voyage the two "do not leave home without them" items are WatchMate AIS with repeater at the helm, and autopilot.
Our transatlantic weather alternated between flat calms and 25-35Kn winds with 15-20+ foot waves. We set our course to run between the two main shipping lanes and frequently were in close contact with large cargo vessels; most of whom expressed appreciation to our use of the AIS as it enabled them to take early evasive action to steer clear of us in the heavy weather we were experiencing.Alan Thilo, SS Makai, 43ft Slocum (email September 8, 2016)

We left May 25th from Jubilee Yacht Club in Beverly Massachusetts and arrived June 2nd to Herrington Harbor North in Deale Maryland, about 600 nautical miles. Trip was fantastic, weather was great and the crew comprised of (4) Argentinians including myself, We sailed large portions at night and in some cases with fog, your system performed flawlessly in both my Raymarine C80 and the Standard Marine CP300i. While in the Long Island Sound and in the New York City area we were able to sail safely using the built in alarms in both systems.
Very happy with the system, I do regret not buying the wifi version just to complete the iPad with Navionics package I am now putting together as a back up and trip planning package.Marcel Beraud, S/V Merlin, Marblehead (email July 27,2016)
