About

WASSP is a world leader in Multibeam technology. Since 2000 WASSP has been developing a range of products for Superyachts and other sectors. Our multibeam sounder gives you a wide-angle 120° port-to-starboard view of the seafloor and water column. The viewing span is over 3 times sea depth, and WASSP can profile an area more than 100 times faster than a single-beam system. With WASSP 3D mapping in real-time, you can accurately profile the water column and seafloor with unparalleled precision.

With WASSP wireless W3 your tender can generate your own 3D Bathometric charts and share them live by WiFi to the mothership. These charts are real including any changes that may have been made since your electronic charts were generated. When exploring remote locations, dive sites or wrecks, the W3 can help you avoid obstacles and accidental damage and plan for the perfect dive, fish or anchorage for lunch. Natural events like cyclones, hurricanes, volcanoes and earthquakes can alter the seafloor. This means the bay in which you anchored last season may no longer be safe. Only real-time data can tell you. Don’t take the risk – play it safe and make your own bathometric maps with WASSP.

Image for WASSP F3X high performance for mother ships and game Fishing

The all new F3X model is a quantum leap forward in multibeam sounder technology. Significant adva nces by WASSP engineers have achieved an overall result more than 12 times more powerful than our previous F3 model. Incremental and detailed improvements to the core function of the WASSP technology elevates the F3X to a new standard of performance for Navigation and Game Fishing. Better target detection, deeper depths, greater screen clarity generated by more energy and better processing than ever before. WASSP, the professional multibeam sounder that delivers water column and seabed profiling with 224 beams offering significant improvements in speed and accuracy over conventional single-beam echo-sounders, is delighted to announce the launch of its big brother in the product range.  The F3X with additional processing and transmission energy will benefit from additional performance at all depths and get the same great WASSP features and functionality in deeper waters.The WASSP F3X offers significantly more power along with long pulse time that equates to more energy in the water meaning more clarity in shallow and medium depths of 50 to 500m. The F3X with the 80kHz transducer provides the ability to operate as a sounder in depths of 1000m and provide mapping of the sea floor with Water Column Targets (fish) shown in 850m of water. F3X also comes as standard with our patent pending Interference Management Systems (IMS) including AKP ready for install on complex vessels with several other sounders and sonars installed.
