Boats are a different deal. Marine receivers need to do a lot of things that car receivers don't, in conditions that aren't always safe from the elements. And then there's the question of where to put your new receiver. Larger boats offer plenty of room in the dash or bulkhead, but smaller boats have a lot less space – sometimes next to no space – for a wide array of essential electronics.
Marine audio manufacturers know this, of course, which is why boat receivers are available in a variety of shapes, sizes, and configurations. From compact (but feature-packed) gauge-style receivers to high-tech, NMEA 2000-compatible models, there are lots of great choices out there. Choosing the right one for your boat will depend on the space you have for a receiver, the sources you need it to play, and the other electronics you want it to work with.
