Marine Speedometer Gauges

Marine Speedometer Gauges

As the name implies, marine speedometers are meant for measuring the vessel's current speed. As is the case with land vehicles, knowing this parameter can help you avoid dangerous situations and keep engine load and fuel consumption within an optimal range. However, marine speedos take their measurements in a different way than their automotive counterparts. Boats don't have wheels, and their speed can be determined thanks to a pitot tube or similar mechanism submerged in water and sensing the difference in pressure while the vessel is changing its velocity.

If you need more accuracy, the industry offers GPS speedometer gauges that show how quickly you're moving from one destination to another. Naturally, they need open sky and satellite visibility, but their accuracy is considered the highest in the class, while the data displayed on their mechanical counterparts may depend on currents, tides, and some other factors causing speed discrepancy. In our online store, you will find a large assortment of marine speedometer gauges available in different types and designs. But whatever you choose, you will get a quality product engineered to serve for years to come.
