Talk anywhere onboard
Traditional marine VHF radios keep you
confined to the helm with their short handset
coil-cords that limit your ability to move about.
Raymarine’s new Ray90 and Ray91 modular
VHF radios give you the freedom to roam and
communicate from any where onboard using
optional wireless handset stations.
The versatile Ray90 and Ray91 modular
radios offer you the convenience of having two
wired handsets and three optional wireless
handset stations. Wired or wireless, you’ll have
full access and control of every feature these
high-performance VHF radios have to offer.
Both models feature a powerful,
commercial-grade marine VHF radio transceiver
with the latest Class-D Digital Selective Calling
for convenience and safety. They are also
equipped with a built-in loudhailer and fog-
signal generator that can be easily activated
by adding an optional hailing horn accessory.
In addition to ship-to-shore and ship-to-
ship calling, use the radio’s intercom feature
to make internal calls from station to station.
Connect the Ray91 to your multifunction display
and instrument network to see the position
and identity of nearby AIS-equipped vessels.

In 1990 a Melbourne backyard pool
inspired an Aussie boating invention that
has reached new
heights in 2018.
created so racing
boats could keep
that “new boat”
Many yachties and their boats have
enjoyed thousands of growth free days by
using Boatbags. Highly competitive one
design yachts up to 40 feet have been
the biggest users to date to benefit from
In early 2018, after extensive trials and
reworks, power boat owners were pleased
to try our new improved designs specifically
for them. Overdue some may say, but better
late than never.
Yachties also continue to win. Recent
testing, new designs and enhanced
components mean Boatbags are made to last
longer with tougher, more flexible materials
than older style laminates; ultimately leading
to increased longevity and bigger savings.
Great news for ALL boat owners ... you’ll like
our new designs.
