The Raymarine DockSense Alert System will be a factory-installed option on select 2021 model-year boats

US fishing boat builder Boston Whaler has announced plans to offer Raymarine’s DockSense Alert system as a factory-installed option on select 2021 model-year boats beginning later this year.

The DockSense Alert system detects, displays and alerts the captain to obstacles around a boat using FLIR machine vision camera technology and video analytics. It comprises three DockSense stereo vision cameras and a central processor connected to a Raymarine Axiom display or network.

DockSense Alert accurately measures distances to the dock, pilings and other moored vessels, and provides real-time visual indicators along with a live camera view on Raymarine Axiom multifunction displays. The system also provides audible and visual feedback to alert the captain in real-time to the proximity of objects near the boat.

Visitors at the 2020 Miami International Boat Show will have the opportunity to experience Raymarine DockSense Alert technology onboard a Mercury-powered Boston Whaler 380 Outrage at Pier 8, Slip 879.
