New Cat - What Navigation / Radar ?

Hi all, i am looking for advice on setting up a complete navigation for a 40' catamaran, i have sailed on dams only and have no idea where to start with all the products available.Please could you advise me on what equipment would be best suited ie chartplotter , autopilot ( hydraulic ) radar, gps echosounder etc
We will be sailing the south african coast up to madagascar and later the
Caribbean bearing in mind that there are not many agents /repair specialist in this part of the world, I am looking for something that wont break the bank with the current exchange rate and most of all it must be reliable
thanks in advance !

Re: new cat what navigation / radar help

Furuno if service and reliability are the ONLY criteria.

But I really like the new B&G Zeus system coupled with Simrad autopilot would be about the best out there.
