May 2016 | Boating Industry | 21 AEGIS LIFESHIRT The Aegis Lifeshirt marries a comfortable shirt to an infl atable life jacket device in a way that style and function are not compromised. Lifeshirt can be worn in automatic or manual mode. In the automatic setting, Lifeshirt instantly infl ates when the device is submerged beneath the wa- ter's surface. Lifeshirt can also be set to manual mode where the wearer must pull a ripcord to activate the infl ation. Lifeshirt won Best of Show at ICAST for the Technical Apparel category. ARI DIGITAL MARKETING SERVICES ARI has introduced scalable Digital Marketing Services packages designed to meet the needs of all marine dealers, with packages ranging from $99/month to a full "digital agency" engagement. Available at several price points and service lev- els, including local search and social media, digital marketing, SEO, content creation, pay-per-click advertising, strategy development and more. BLUE WAVE BOATS CLEARVISION LIVEWELL The ClearVision Livewell – offered in the 2000, 2200 and 2400 Pure Bay Series – is clear acrylic, backlit with blue LED lights, offering aesthetic appeal and practical benefi ts. The clear acrylic allows light inside which prevents users from "fl ashing" their fi sh – which causes stress to fi sh when going from dark to light – every time the lid is opened and closed. BRP INTELLIGENT SHIFT AND THROTTLE BRP's new Intelligent Shift and Throttle (iST) system for Rotax Jet Propulsion Systems helps remove anxiety when docking jet boats. When in neutral, the iST system's reverse gates are po- sitioned to redirect a portion of the forward and rearward thrust to minimize boat speed. The iST system replaces most of the mechanical shift linkage with an electronic actuator, providing for fi ner adjustment of the neutral position. iST BAYLINER VR5 RUNABOUT The Bayliner VR5's is designed with a goal of enhanced performance, refi ned styling and maximized usable interior space with Bayliner's BeamForward and AftAdvantage design. Compared with a traditional de- sign's more pointed bow, the VR5's design creates a, large, oversized bowrider section. The VR5 also moves the swim platform aft, using all the area over the hull for seating and lounging. Bayliner also added a three- position companion seat, rear lounger with walk-thru, a self bailing cockpit, a quick- planing Deep-V hull design with all-fi ber- glass stringer system, and distinctive hull side sculpting.
