Consumer Marine, popular for their marine communication, navigation, and electronics sales, has combined with Overton's greatly expanding on their product line and offerings. The Consumer Marine Electronics website now brings you directly to Overton's, but is still owned and operated by Consumer Marine. Along with marine electronic equipment, Consumer Marine now offers over 50,000 products, from categories such as:

Consumer Marine and Overton's still offer their full line of marine electronics, such as:

Consumers Marine Electronics: What makes it different?

In combining Consumer Marine with Overton's, as a consumer you have the option of ordering on the internet, over the phone, or in person at one of the retail outlets. In today's market, there's not always that many options. This also broadens the customer base, as some consumers prefer a mail order or in-person purchases, over internet transactions.

The website allows for individual user reviews on products, as well as informative descriptions and specifications. If available, there are also videos for products highlighting features, and giving examples / reviews of use. There is also a Q&A section for asking for more information from other shoppers.

When looking at a main view of the products page, product reviews are highlighted for each item, with a basic five star rating system. It allows the shopper to quickly glance through many products at once and view submitted feedback. This is a nice feature many online marine electronics stores lack.

Consumers Marine Electronics vs. primary competitors (sites similar to Consumers Marine Electronics)

It is difficult to compare Consumer Marine to other sites, simply because there are no other sites like it. The Consumer Marine site offers such a wide variety of products through the Overton's brand, that no marine electronic competitor comes close.

Sites like StarMarineDepot offer a great selection of marine electronics, but that's where the similarities end. Not only did I find the site difficult to navigate, but there is nowhere near the selection and variety of products offered as by the Consumer Marine site. BOE Marine is similar in its offerings to that of Consumer Marine, but appears to be more geared towards ocean fairing yachts and commercial boats than the average weekend boater. They do offer a large variety of electronic marine products, as well as general marine items, but it was difficult to find similar items to compare between the two sites, especially in regards to electronics.

Consumer Marine offers products well beyond just electronics. This is quite handy because though they handle your electronic needs extremely well, chances are you are going to need other parts for your watercraft, and making one stop, or one order, or only paying shipping one time, is a benefit in itself. Consumer Marine is a one stop shop for the average boater.

Consumers Marine Electronics: Pricing & packages

In a basic price comparison of items, Consumer Marine was found to have slightly increased prices over that of their competitors. A Furuno FR8062 high performance X-band radar system from Consumer Marine is listed at $9,599.99 at the time of this writing. StarMarineDepot offered the same item for close to 10% less. StarMarineDepot also offers a competitive price match, which is not advertised from Consumer Marine, but may be available if you call. BOE Marine did not carry the FR8062 model.

However, when looking at a Raymarine Ray 218 VHF radio, the listed price on Consumer Marine is $459.99 whereas StarMarineDepot offers the same unit for $466.95, $7 more. What this means, is that the same with any electronic goods, it is always best to comparison shop, especially considering at the time of this witting many items were on sale through Consumer Marine and therefore not included in the price comparison. No large sales were noticed at either StarMarineDepot or BOE Marine at this time.

Another review from CoolComputing says this about the Overton's parent site:

"Posted by Bob on Friday, June 3, 2011 at 9:56 AM CDT

My father ordered new seats for his pontoon boat. They arrived in just 1 day. We had a couple of questions so we called and got a friendly and knowledgeable person who answered our questions. The seats went in without a hitch and look great! That's how I wish all my purchases would be."
