With a strikingly visible orange core, Cobra Marine’s Floating Handheld VHF Radios can be easily retrieved if accidentally dropped overboard and provide powerful, clear communication in a compact size.

The Cobra HH330 FLT and Bluetooth®-equipped MR HH475 FLT BT operate with 6 watts of power, have simple controls and a large LCD screen for quick and accurate viewing, while still comfortably fitting in an owner’s hand.  A noise-canceling microphone blocks background noises, such as wind and engine sounds, for clearer conversations.  Both VHFs feature a speaker/mic jack for convenient operation with an accessory lapel mic.

The MR HH475 FLT BT incorporates patent-pending MicroBlue™ technology that lets users make and receive cell phone calls through the radio using Bluetooth wireless technology.  For additional convenience, it also includes Rewind-Say-Again to record and replay up to 20 seconds of a call.

Unlike other products on the market, Cobra’s Floating Handhelds use a rugged bulkhead or console mountable, secure drop-in charger.  The VHFs also come with a DC charger for boat or vehicle charging.  In an emergency or when the Lithium Ion battery is unavailable, these radios can also operate with common AA batteries.

The Cobra Floating Line also features 24-hour, instant access to NOAA’s national All Hazards and weather information, as well as channel 16 for emergencies.  Tri-Watch allows users to monitor three channels at a time, while the Scan feature can run through all channels or those programmed into memory to find active conversations.

Each unit comes with a Lithium Ion rechargeable battery, locking desktop charger with AC/DC adapters and a spring-loaded belt clip.  Cobra Marine’s HH330 FLT retails for $149.95.  The MR HH475 FLT BT is $199.95.

Cobra Electronics is a leading global designer and marketer of communication and navigation products, with a track record of delivering innovative and award-winning products.  Building upon its leadership position in the GMRS/FRS two-way radio, radar detector and Citizens Band radio industries, Cobra identified new growth opportunities and has aggressively expanded into the marine market and has expanded its European operations.  The Consumer Electronics Association, Forbes, and Deloitte & Touche have all recognized Cobra for the company’s innovation and industry leadership.
