Comar AIS CSA 300

Comar CSA-300: A more affordable yet still full-feature AIS.

Comar AIS CSA 300

Comar Systems has two new affordable AIS transponders and receivers.

The CSA300 is Comar’s new flagship product and its first Class A unit. Although intended primarily for commercial vessels and fully approved by the IMO and FCC for those that are required by law to carry AIS, it doesn’t carry quite the eye-watering price tag that most of its competitors do. With a price of $2,999, Comar is hoping it will find its way onto some of the more up-market recreational craft and small commercial vessels whose skippers appreciate features, such as its ability to transmit and receive text messages and safety broadcasts, that are not found in Class B units, as well as the “radar” graphic display of nearby vessels that is popular on recreational units but much less common on commercial ones.
