Marine electronics manufacturer, Raymarine, has acquired Tacktick from its Finnish owner Suunto.

Tacktick is a UK manufacturer of wireless, solar-powered instruments for the marine market worldwide.

“We think this acquisition makes tremendous sense for us,” says Raymarine general manager Tom Surran.

“Tacktick’s unique Micronet technology allied with the development rigour and manufacturing efficiencies of Raymarine will make for a powerful combination.”

Tacktick equipment will eventually be distributed as a product line through Raymarine subsidiaries, distributors and service dealers worldwide.
