Raymarine’s stunning new Cyclone takes open-array radar to the next level, delivering incredibly powerful CHIRP precision in a low profile, lightweight package.

With a strikingly aggressive aircraft-wing-inspired design, Cyclone radars not only look as good on a 6m hardtop as they do on 18m cruiser, they also offer a level of performance usually found only on much larger and far more expensive radars.

Thanks to the latest CHIRP pulse compression and beam-sharpening technology, combined with Raymarine’s unique new RangeFusion™, Cyclone radars can quickly and clearly identify and display both close range and distant targets in a single radar image that is quick and easy to interpret. ­

With Cyclone, Raymarine, the original pioneers of Bird Radar, have taken their world-leading Bird Mode to new levels. Automatically intelligently optimising radar gain and sea clutter controls the new Bird Mode quickly identifies and targets distant flocks of seabirds, including those just above the surface of the water. Combined with Raymarine’s world-leading CHIRP and Doppler technologies, Cyclone’s unique Bird Mode also enables skippers to not only pick out individual birds but to also quickly see at a glance which way they are moving.

Designed with both commercial and recreational vessels in mind, Cyclone radars are built to withstand with extreme (up to 100 knot winds) weather conditions while, thanks to its stunningly-fast 60rpm rotational speed, continuing to deliver 360-degree awareness and accurate tracking of up to 100 distinct ARPA targets in real-time, even when the vessel is at full speed!

Raymarine’s new Cyclone radars are available in six solid state models:

in 3’, 4’, or 6’ with either Cyclone 55 watt/6kW equivalent magnetron performance or Cyclone Pro 110 watt/12kW equivalent magnetron performance. All integrate seamlessly with Raymarine Axiom, Axiom+, Axiom Pro, and Axiom XL chartplotter multifunction displays and are backed by Raymarine’s industry-leading three-year warranty.

Raymarine’s stylish, powerful Cyclone open-array CHIRP radars are now available on pre-order through Lusty and Blundell’s Albany, Whangarei and Tauranga showrooms and from their nationwide network of leading marine dealers.
