Garmin Marine – Sailing boats up to 13 meters

Whether you have a cruising or a racing boat, Garmin Marine has the connection scheme for you. Each boat has different needs, depending primarily on how you want to use it. In a 13 meter sailboat, electronics begin to play a really important role, and designing the right connection scheme is a key element to really enjoy sailing.

Description

Garmin Marine has studied connection diagrams, according to the type of vessel and use, to simplify the work for the owner or the shipyard in the choice of the most suitable instrumentation. Today we see the connection diagrams of a sailing boat of 13 meters in two versions: cruise and regatta.


 

Garmin Marine – Racing sailboat of 43 feet

On a racing sailboat of about 43 feet, about 13 meters, here is the ideal instrumentation that should not be missing on board.schema di collegamento garmin vela 43 piedi

Navigation

  • GWind wind station connected with GND 10, the Black box that allows seamless integration between Nexus instruments + sensors and Garmin products, including gWind transducers, gWind Wireless and gWind Regata. Its plug-and-play installation, with USB connectivity, avoid the need for system settings and configurations.
    GND 10 allows the use of racing software, such as NexusRace, Expedition, Adrena or SeaTrack, to communicate sailing specific functions between the Nexus and NMEA 200 networks.
  • Three GNX120 Screens on which you can view data such as speed, angle, apparent wind and much more, coming from the wind station and the DST 800 through transducer that also provides depth and temperature data to the NMEA 2000 network.
  • The ECU 12 (Electronic Control Unit) is connected to the Reactor 40 autopilot and the GRF 10, angle sensor. The arm of the GRF 10 is connected to the rudder of the boat and transmits the information on the rudder position.
  • The command center of the whole system is the 10 inch Chartplotter GPSMAP 8410, equipped with a high performance processor. In very little time you can have cartography, data and indicators in front of your eyes. All this with one finger and in any condition or moment such as mooring, when the timeliness of an instrument makes the difference.
  • The remote control keyboard GRID 20 allows you to control the entire Garmin system installed on board. Includes a joystick with 360-degree rotation, rotary knob and push-to-select button for easy navigation and precise control of menus and chartplotter settings, even in rough seas.

Safety

  • The AIS 800 is a transceiver that gives you a better understanding of what’s around us when we sail. With this tool you can display on your chartplotter the AIS (Automatic Identification System) class B/SO data of the surrounding vessels with all the identification information and data related to position, course and speed, as well as send your own. It goes without saying that in terms of safety such an instrument is essential. In this configuration it has an external antenna connector (AIS 800 also includes an integrated GPS).
  • The new VHF 315i is a modular system designed for boats where it is possible (and sometimes necessary) to have a system with multiple communication stations, or on boats where there is no space to install a traditional VHF in the console. This system is connected to the GA 38 antenna, as well as the Active Speaker and GHS 11i unit, a compact and robust, fully waterproof handset.

Garmin Marine – Cruising sailboat – 43 feet

On a cruising sailboat of about 43 feet, about 13 meters, here is the ideal connection scheme designed by Garmin Marine. The boat in question is equipped with a double wheelhouse and therefore has double multifunction.

On-board Automation

  • On a sailing boat is a real godsend to have the total management and control/alarms of the power supply on board. The EmpirBus Web Display (WDU) unit allows you to have always everything under control with a very simple user interface.
  • Empirbus Connect 50 modules are connected to EmpirBus DCM and they have 11 input channels (analog or digital) and 20 output channels. Through these systems it is possible to optimize consumption by switching on the on-board lights at the desired level, keeping the level of the fresh water and diesel tank under control, for maximum operating autonomy. An alarm will signal any burnt-out light or the activation of a bilge pump. The automation system on board is manageable thanks to three keypads that allow you to have under control the static services, such as anchor windlass, temperature (air conditioning on board), lights on board and street lights.
  • In this configuration there are two GMS 10, a network hub with 5 self-configuring inputs, with data transfer rates of 100 MB. The devices connected to this device are automatically detected and are immediately accessible once connected to the network.

Navigation

  • The ECU 12 (Electronic Control Unit) is connected to the Reactor 40 autopilot and the 2-liter reversible pump with which you can pump hydraulic fluid from the steering cylinders to the rudder.
  • A bronze B60 transducer with base level inclination adapts the inclination angles of 16-24 degrees without fairing.

Safety

  • The new VHF 315i is a modular system designed for boats where it is possible (and sometimes necessary) to have a system with multiple communication stations, or on boats where there is no space to install a traditional VHF in the console. This system is connected to the GA 38 antenna, as well as the Active Speaker and GHS 11i unit, a compact and robust, fully waterproof handset.
  • The GMR 18 HD Radome high-definition antenna ensures the highest accuracy in scanning the surrounding environment and target detection in all weather conditions, and allows an extremely high image definition up to 36 nautical miles.
  • This configuration includes three waterproof GC 200 cameras. What are they for? For example to manoeuvre in a crowded harbor or to provide high definition images in low light, such as in the engine room.
