Raymarine Offers Trade-In Credit as Part of Sale Campaign

Wouldn't it be nice to get even just a little bit for trading in your old marine electronics? Check out this sale from Raymarine. It'll buy you more than just a cup of coffee.

It may not make or break the deal for you financially, but in addition to significant discounts for many key products in its marine electronics line, Raymarine will give you an extra $50 if you trade in that old unit.  The trade-in moolah is good for “any brand, make or model of radar display, chartplotter display, fishfinder display or multifunction display,” according to Raymarine.  Not bad.  Won’t buy a whole new instrument with it, but it will offset part of the cost of the new map chip you might need to buy.  When I bought an expensive multi-function chartplotter in 2004, I didn’t know that it would be eclipsed in just one year by a totally re-vamped successor.  Given that a marine electronic unit being traded in is almost, by definition, obsolete, I never expected to get real money for it, but even a gesture would have been nice.  This is a nice gesture and $50.

In addition to the trade-in — okay, the trade-in is technically in addition to the sale — there are some pretty good savings on some popular products.  Here are the details, as provided by Raymarine:
