Raymarine Dragonfly delivers amazing views of the underwater world – share your underwater images for the chance to win Dragonfly prizes

April 2013

Raymarine’s innovative and award-winning DragonflyTM is the latest high-technology sonar that has to be seen to be believed. Now available internationally through marine retailers and dealers, all boaters want to get their hands on the compact, stand-alone, high clarity colour screen sonar and GPS chartplotter.

Dragonfly’s technology provides two independent channels enabling the ultimate in fish targeting through its CHIRP ClearPulse technology, with amazing photo-like underwater imagery using CHIRP DownVisionTM. Simply switch between the screens to choose a split screen view of the fish around you and the high clarity images of the terrain beneath you, or choose Dragonfly’s chartplotter function with 50-channel high precision GPS and Navionics Silver or Gold cartography to see exactly where you are on screen.

A team of international Raymarine ambassadors and selected product testers have been using pre-production models of Dragonfly and posting amazing videos of its capabilities online. Raymarine is now offering everyone the chance to get their hands on Dragonfly accessories and even win back the price of their Dragonfly, complete with transom mount CPT-60 CHIRP sonar transducer, simply by sending in their best screen images.

The Raymarine Dragonfly Screen Capture Contest challenges boaters and anglers to send in and share with the world their best ‘Dragonfly in action’ screen captures, pitting the best against the amazing high clarity views of a wreck in Lake Lanier, Georgia USA, and Pittwater Wreck off the coast of New South Wales, Australia.

Each month Raymarine will choose the best submissions and the winners will receive a Dragonfly sun cover and carrying case for any screen capture images published by the company. Additionally, one lucky winner each month will receive a refund of the full purchase price of their Dragonfly system. The official entry form and details are available at www.raymarine.eu/dragonfly.

Dragonfly is now available worldwide through Raymarine’s marine electronics retailers and dealers. Prices start at £485 / €595 ex tax for Dragonfly without cartography; £545/€675 ex tax for Dragonfly with Navionics EU Silver charts and £595/€725 ex tax for Dragonfly with Navionics EU small Gold chart.
