Vesper Marine is dedicated to safety on the water for sail, power and work boats. Our award-winning collision avoidance AIS transponders, displays and virtual beacons are designed by the Vesper Marine engineering team and built in New Zealand with an unwavering focus on quality, exceptional value and outstanding customer support.
The US Coast Guard has significantly widened the number of vessels required to operate an AIS. This affects commercial vessels larger than 65 feet, including fishing, as well as certain towing and passenger vessels. The new rules require these vessels to have USCG approved AIS transponders installed by March 2016.
