Vesper Marine, a leading provider of innovative marine hardware and software, have announced that Vesper Marine Cortex has been awarded the Best New Product Award at the 2019 National Marine Electronics Association (NMEA) Conference and Expo in Norfolk, Virginia.

NMEA created the Best New Product Award to celebrate one product that was introduced to the market at the combined NMEA/RTCM event which a panel of five judges deemed best in the areas of innovation, benefit to boaters, practicality and value.

Taking top honors was Vesper Marine's Cortex, the world's first marine VHF with wireless touchscreen handsets, built-in Class B/SOTDMA AIS transponder and remote vessel monitoring. Cortex provides unparalleled safety by alerting boaters of collision risks, providing key information about the situation and making it easy to communicate using VHF, DSC and AIS. Touchscreen handsets make typically complicated functions easy to use.

The Vesper system combines navigation and sensor data with intelligent alarms to prioritize voice alerts on wireless handsets or a connected speaker. With a free cellular connection, Cortex provides plug and play remote monitoring for battery state, bilge high water and more, while a subscription enables real-time views, alerts and remote control of onboard devices like refrigeration or air conditioning. For enhanced safety boaters receive Anchor Watch alarms both on board and when they are ashore via smartphone app for complete peace of mind.

"We are so excited to be recognized by our industry peers," said Jeff Robbins, founder, Vesper Marine. "Being honored with the 2019 NMEA Best New Product Award continues to inspire our mission of customer-centric innovation that enhances safety on the water."
