Using his WESMAR Trawl Sonar to set more wire, Skipper Steve Mallinson, FV Bay Islander, catches the fish trying to dive under the footrope. "The sonar helps me see what and how changes are made to the net so I'm not fishing blind. I can even identify specie based on characteristics of the schools, helping not to under or over-fill the nets."

The 134.6 foot Superyacht taTii was designed, built and launched by Tamsen Yachts in 2009. She has had WESMAR bow and stern thruster and roll fin stabilizers on board since then.
She is now undergoing an extensive refit at the CMB Shipyard in Antalya, in the South of Turkey where she will be fitted with a new WESMAR DSP4803  zero speed stabilizer system with 30-foot fins. Only the best for this queen of ships, which luxuriously accommodates up to 10 guests in 5 cabins.
Her navigation and safety will be enhanced by a WESMAR NS86O sonar system, similar to the 10-inch design on Captain Wilmore’s Muir Milach. Both the zero speed stabilizers and the stabilized WESMAR sonar are the best possible choices for this Superyacht.

“The Muir Milach was top boat for its fishing period during the spring offshore season and 25 percent of that was the WESMAR sonar. It is a remarkable and really useful tool. We saw signs at 180 fathoms, which is unheard of with other searchlight sonar. There are a lot of other things on the boat I’d give up before giving up that sonar. With this system I can steer into the best part of the sign. I have shorter tows which saves valuable time and fuel.”

—Captain Dave Wilmore

“The electronically stabilized soundome removes the effect of boat motion on the sonar beam, so you don’t lose sight of the water column due to cavitation or bubbles.” 
Dueber, had the WESMAR HD860-160 sonar with 8” soundome installed on his 52-foot fiberglass Sea Master the FV RAVEN DANCER. "It definitely gives me an edge. I’m able to see the fish more of the time; I don’t lose sight of the water column when the weather gets rough.”

“We fish the entire West Coast during the July to October Albacore season. We also fish the Washington State Dungeness crab season during the winter.  Although we did not anticipate using the sonar on crab my Captain for that fishery uses it. He tilts the angle down to get an extra view of the bottom and it’s pretty accurate."

"I have a Wesmar HD825 sonar and a Wesmar stainless steel bow thruster that help me find the fish and maneuver safely in and around boulders and other obstructions in shallow bays and rivers."  Captain Ray Wadsorth, owner of the 58-foot Alaska limit seiner F/V Liahona.

"The WESMAR worlked flawlessly when navigating the channels into the harbor and the picture on the sonar screen looked good," said Captain Jorg Walczak vice President Special Projects for International Shipping Partners, speaking of the WESMAR sonar on board the 407-foot cruise ship M/V.
