Boating Industry’s 2021 Top Products

Now in its eighth year, the Boating Industry Top Products program brings you 50 of the marine industry’s newest and most innovative products and services to recently hit the market, ranging from boat models to building components and everything in between.

In order to be eligible for consideration, products or services had to have been introduced or significantly updated since January 2020. With a multitude of well-qualified products and services submitted for consideration, narrowing the field down to the final 50 was a monumental task for the team at Boating Industry. The proceeding list of products differentiated themselves from the group for their impact on the industry, innovations and how they advance the product category, or in some cases, create a new segment on its own.

Anthem Marine Karma23
Anthem’s Karma has the comfort and spacious layout of a pontoon combined with the performance of a surfboat. It has several innovative patent-pending features: 1.  Sport ramp — the powered ramp on the front of the boat opens for easy access from the trailer/ beach/dock and also serves as a swim platform. 2. The V3 ballast system features openings on the hull bottom, permitting filling and draining of 3600 pounds of ballast in about three minutes without any pumps or complex plumbing. Because the system fully drains and promotes air circulation when the boat is out of the water it dramatically reduces the chances of transporting invasive species.  3.  The open and flowing layout has easy access from the bow, doors on each side and transom walkway, meaning there’s no climbing over interior seats.

Attwood Sahara Mk2 Automatic Bilge Pump
The Sahara Mk2 is the only automatic bilge pump that eliminates air locks with its innovative, patented X-Air Impeller. Its engineered performance forces air bubbles trapped in the hose and underside of the pump out of the pipework, so that the pump will not run dry and burn out.

KICKER Marine Audio KMFC and KMTC Horn-Loaded Speakers
The acoustics of speakers are determined by their geometry and construction and KICKER Marine Audio, banking on its 50-year reputation in the 12-volt world, created its “horn-loaded” speakers for sonic purity. The KMFC and KMTC horn features a constantly changing cross section from the horn’s driver to its flare. So unlike other speakers in its category that have “straight section with flare”—like a trumpet–Kicker’s superior horn geometry eliminates problematic standing waves and resonances. The 11-inch speakers are also the largest in the class, providing the greatest cone area, further enhancing sound quality and efficiency. The two mounting systems also simplify installation as the KMFC bolts directly to OEM’s “factory” or “flat” surfaces. All wiring is hidden in the mounting for marine grade connection. For the dealer or consumer mounting to round tubes—the majority of boat towers on the market—the KMTC offers an easy plug-and-play connection.

Power Pux Power Supplied Trolling Motor Quick Release Bracket
Power Pux began as an idea to solve a large concern amongst a select known group of anglers who were frustrated with the available options for powering their trolling motors. The locations and placement of the plugs were undesirable, sometimes dangerous and often created a domino effect of other issues including water leaks in dry storage lockers. The length of the power cords leading to those plugs were also clumsy, defaced the look of the boat, along with being a trip hazard and a potential nuisance for fishing lines. Each Power Pux kit includes an integrated power plug within the assembly for a clean and protected electrical connection with your trolling motor. It is designed to fit most pre-drilled trolling motor mounting bracket patterns and makes for an easy retrofit with your current quick release product.
