Fusion announces contract with Finn-Marin Boats

Entertainment Leader to Provide Award-Winning Audio Experience to Versatile Boat Manufacturer.

01 April 2016

FUSION®, a worldwide leader in marine audio engineering, announced today that it signed a partnership with Finn-Marin. Under the terms of the agreement, the full range of Finn-Marin boats including the Grandezza, Finnmaster and aluminum Finnmaster Husky boat brands will be offered with FUSION audio entertainment including the RA205 and AV750 head units, as well as the full range of standard marine and Signature Series speakers.

“Each of the Finn-Marin boat brands bring unique design, manufacturing and environmental standards to the market,” said Chris Baird, managing director, FUSION Entertainment. “Whether it is the bold styling and attention to detail in the Finnish craftsmanship aboard the luxury Grandezza Series, or the practical efficiency, versatility and reliability of Finnmaster boats, each brand uses only the finest materials and components. Whether their boat is equipped with the compact RA205 or the feature-rich AV750, our customers are sure to enjoy their FUSION experience.”

The RA205 is an advanced compact marine stereo unit, built with proven FUSION-Link™ and NMEA 2000 connectivity, allowing for completely customizable control and rich sound quality. For smoother playback even in the harshest conditions, the AV750 Marine Entertainment System with DVD/CD playback via HDMI gives the discerning listener even more options for on-the-water enjoyment. In addition, the AV750 is the first marine stereo that features HDMI Audio Return Channel (ARC) support, as well as Bluetooth audio streaming from the latest Apple iOS, MTP Windows/Android, DAB/DAB+* radio and USB media devices.

“Our team designs and builds boats with an incredible amount of versatility,” said Jarmo Kinnunen, export manager, Oy Finn-Marin Ltd. “Each hull has a purpose as distinct as the customers that purchase them. Whether cruising on a picture-perfect day in a Finnmaster Husky bowrider or taking an extravagant leisurely weekend cruise on the Grandezza 40, our customers can be sure their sound system is built to the same quality as the vessels that carry them to their next adventure.”

Owners of vessels equipped with the AV750 unit can now enjoy the freedom of wireless control by using the FUSION-Link wireless app available for Apple and Android. The app allows direct control of connected stereo sources, any docked media and Multi-Zone areas. The latest version of the app will operate via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi for added convenience when paired with a router.

FUSION, the leader in marine entertainment, is dedicated to offering innovative solutions that enhance personal leisure time, whether on the water or on the road. FUSION, backed by Garmin, builds products that exceed regulatory standards using the latest technologies at Garmin’s international ISO accredited manufacturing facility.
