Wesmar's new powerful dual stabilised beam sonar, the HD860

A new sonar technology being trialled by vessels in the Americas promises to make fishing more cost effective.

Wesmar’s new powerful dual stabilised beam sonar, the HD860, enables operators to run the transducer in two different modes.

A narrow beam searches long range in searchlight fashion, while a wide beam can be used to bottom type the sea floor ahead.

The HD860 is just one of the money-making pieces of gear for vessel owners that Wesmar will have on display at Seattle Pacific Marine Expo taking place from 16 to 18 November at the CenturyLink Field Event Center.

Fishermen will also be able to view the company’s trawl sonar and powerful stainless-steel counter rotating dual prop bow thrusters.

A local Seattle company, Wesmar brings more than five decades of marine design and manufacturing experience to the sector.
