The Raymarine RA1048SHD open array with Super HD Color technology is more than just the next step in radar evolution, it a giant leap into the future of marine radar technology.

Combining Raymarine’s 48” open array antenna and 4kW Super HD Color radar pedestal, the RA1-48SHD is the perfect choice for mid to large sized sportfishing powerboats, cruising yachts and large sail vessels demanding the absolute best in radar performance and technology.

Raymarine’s exclusive Super HD Color technology brings the power and performance of digital signal processing to marine radar. Utilizing high-speed data processing the Raymarine’s exclusive Super HD Color algorithms, the results are amazingly clear radar images with unmatched target separation and a lifelike presentation that virtually eliminates noise, clutter and false echoes. Super HD Color processing delivers a radar image that can’t be matched by similar analog or digital radar systems, and brings you a level of performance that rivals that of systems of more than twice the physical size and power output.

The RA1048SHD open array comes with a 4kW Super HD Color antenna pedestal, a 48” open array antenna, the VCM100 voltage converter, 15-meter digital interconnect cable, mounting hardware, template and instructions.
