Their adventures may be exciting and unpredictable (making great TV) but the Shards have peace of mind and can relax when it comes to their marine electronics.

The Shards and Raymarine 

Paul and Sheryl Shard have been on our screens for almost two decades filming their sailing adventures that have spanned from underwater encounters with whales and sharks in the Caribbean to transatlantic crossings and navigating in the rough North Sea.


To withstand their varied and lengthy explorations, the Shards require marine electronics that they can rely on and that can handle everything from calm waters to rough seas.
