The 741s, or the 740s Garmin is what I am looking at, there was some good package deals with the radome for under $2K, If you just get the plotter you are in your price
range, then can expand to the radar
and sonar if you ever want to. The adverts I have been reading offer the Bahamas as a part of the installed charts. I have not used one of these units personally, but I have been using Garmin products for years, in the commercial
towing, commercial fishing
, and sailing worlds and have had really good service
. I am currently using a GPS 152, on my tug and while I'm sure it was intended for sports fishers or something like that, it has been working steady since 2009, we are using if for coastwise navigation
to the platforms and it has no charts in it, just the same it endures the gen set changes etc.... I had a Garmin 232 gps plotter on my commercial fishing
boat for years and it has always performed, in fact when I sold the boat, I took it with me to put on "Rose", Since I am intending to travel wider, I am looking at a model where I can put new chart cards into it.
