Sea Ray Chooses KVH As Its Official Satellite Antenna Partner In Exclusive 3-Year Pact

MIDDLETOWN, R.I., Feb. 28, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Boaters invest a good deal of time, money, and passion in their vessels, and naturally demand the best for every inch of these floating homes away from home. Sea Ray, one of the world's premier manufacturers of 17′-60′ pleasure boats, recently met that demand by naming KVH Industries, Inc., ( Nasdaq:KVHI) its exclusive satellite partner for the next three years. KVH is the manufacturer of the award-winning TracVision ® satellite TV systems, which have long adorned the radar arches of discerning Sea Ray owners.

"We chose KVH as our exclusive supplier of satellite television receivers, fully-stabilized antennas, and corresponding hardware because the TracVision products are far superior to competing options for both reception and reliability," says Joe Cacopardo, director of marketing for Sea Ray. "When we first started using KVH products several years ago, we really put them through the wringer. We put TracVision products, and their competitors, through intense physical testing before making our choice, and KVH was the clear winner, so we knew these products would meet the high expectations of Sea Ray owners. Beyond that, KVH has a solid reputation as a trustworthy technology partner with a distinguished network of dealers and support personnel."

For KVH, serving as Sea Ray's official satellite partner is an illustration of the company's continuing commitment to quality.

"Sea Ray boats and KVH antennas are both known for outstanding design, performance, and reliability," says Jim George, KVH's director of sales for satellite products. "This is a great match -- our TracVision product line is diverse enough to offer solutions that will look beautiful and offer outstanding performance aboard any Sea Ray boat. This partnership is the most recent step in the evolution of the longstanding relationship between KVH and Sea Ray and it highlights our mutual commitment to providing great benefits to boaters, as well as our belief in the value and resilience of the marine market."
