What I’m suggesting is that for all my clients oversea’s who are thinking about buying this yacht and shipping her home. I’m asking that you consider leaving her here in the States and come here to use her. You can buy a LOT of plane tickets for years and years for what the shipping alone will cost you. PLUS you have no duties or VAT to pay, plus you can spend years cruising and exploring here. Charleston is an excellent year round location as it doesn’t freeze in the winter, the Bahamas are due South (this yacht has been there many times, just followed the dotted line on her GPS’s), the Chesapeake is not far north, and Florida with it’s very beautiful winters is only 150 miles away. You like Golf? Charleston and it’s surrounding area is chock-a-block with quality courses. Pull up your charts and look around at all the bayous, Islands nearby. Culture? Spoleto festival is held annually in Charleston. Dockage is $900.00 a month. There’s a multi-year waiting list, but if you purchase this yacht-you MAY stay here. Something to think about.

LET’S GO UP TO THE FLYBRIDGE
11′ Caribe Center console RIB w/40hp Yamaha four stroke outboard engine
DeckAll fiberglass w/no exterior wood.7 year structural hull limited warranty, Vacu-bag constructed w/vinylester skin coat. Thermal and accoustic insulation. United construction w/glassed in bulkheads. Meets or exceeds all applicable U.S. Coast Guard safety standards.
This Garmin touch screen chartplotter display will interface with radar, black box fish finder, weather receiver, and an AIS receiver through a Garmin Marine Network connection. Video, NMEA 2000, and NMEA 0183 devices interface with dedicated connectors on the back of the display.
Touch screen buttons, seen here in blue and purple, make the Garmin 5212 easy and intuitive to operate.
Power is supplied through a twist lock connection on the back too. This unit carries an IPX7 waterproof rating. That means it could withstand submersion to a depth of 1 meter for 30 minutes. This unit comes preloaded with Garmin Bluechart g2 U.S. coastal cartography. It also supports Bluechart g2 Visions chart cards. Bluechart Visions adds 3D views both above and below the water surface as well as extensive satellite and aerial photo coverage. This large screen Garmin multi-function display is also available without preloaded cartography, sans the onboard charts it is designated the 5012. Every Garmin 5×12 display ships with an external GPS antenna. We did our initial review with release 2.5 software installed.
Screen Size and Viewability
The Garmin 5212 will take up some serious panel space, it measures 13 inches wide, 9.5 inches high, and 4.7 inches deep. The display screen is 9.3 inches wide and 7.1 inches high, with a diagonal measurement of 12.1 inches. It has a very high 1024 x 768 pixel resolution. We rated day viewability on the 5212 display excellent. The screen was bright and sharp when viewed straight on without polarized sunglasses. We noticed little to no screen darkening when viewing from the side, even at severe angles. With polarized sunglasses no screen darkening was noted when viewing from straight on, but at severe side angles we experienced moderate darkening. No screen fogging was apparent at anytime. The 5212 can be set to dim and change color palette automatically to enhance low light viewing. We tried the auto system and found it worked well. We also used manual control to set the brightness level and the color palette. The night color palette uses darker coloration to enhance nighttime viewability. We rated the 5212 good for night viewability. The ability to dim the display at night has been enhanced in the 4.6 software release.
All functions on the Garmin 5212 are controlled with menus or buttons displayed onscreen. This is the first plotter design weve seen or used with touch screen operation.
The Garmin 5212 shows tide data in a graphical display with text data below listing high and low tide times and heights.
We like the interface and found it easy to use. Garmin uses a capacitive touch screen technology because of its sturdiness and ability to function while wet. We have used the 5212 touch screen in a variety of weather conditions including heavy rain and found it worked as advertised under all test conditions. One downside with this technology is it wont work if you wear gloves, a real negative in cold weather. The only issue we had with the 5212 operation, and it may be a little bit picky, is the number of screen button pushes sometimes needed to complete a task. For example, if you were operating with a full screen navigation chart displayed youd have to return to the Home page then hit Mark to save a waypoint at the present position. According to Garmin Communications Manager, Ted Gartner, a new software update will place a Mark field on every page to make creating a waypoint a one button process. The Mark field was added with the 4.1 software release.
You can navigate to an already built waypoint directly from the navigation page by touching it with your finger. This will bring up a menu with the Navigate To selection, you press that then press Go To to execute navigation to a waypoint. The same technique can be used to navigate to the cursor position or a selected marker. Routes can be created easily by placing your finger onscreen to locate and create the first waypoint. Pressing the Add Turn field allows you to add another leg. When you’re finished you press the Done field to complete the route. Up to 250 waypoints can be used in a route.
Odds and Ends
For data entry a full alphanumeric keyboard, not keypad, is displayed onscreen. Every letter and number has its own large pushbutton displayed onscreen. This made data entry a breeze. In our opinion, this is the best data entry system weve seen on any chartplotter weve tested.
The 5212 with three windows and a data block displayed. The right hand window shows the Mariner’s Eye 3D view.
The 5212 has one chart card slot, and can store up to 1500 waypoints and 20 routes. Waypoint names are restricted to only 10 character names, too short in our opinion. Screen redraws on the Garmin 5212 can be rather slow. If you pan or range the chart a long distance it can take up to 5 or so seconds to redraw all data. This unit automatically varies the amount of data displayed onscreen depending on the range setting. The user can set the amount of data to be displayed at any one of five levels. Split screen combinations can be customized by the user. Up to 4 data sources can be displayed in an individual window simultaneously with a data strip. Commonly used split screen combinations like chart and sounder have been preset at the factory for easy selection. The unit now carries a 2-year warranty. See our review of the wireless Garmin RF RemoteThis unit is designed to operate the 5212 from as far as 30 feet away.
We like the large screen, touch screen interface, and wide ranging capabilities of this Garmin touch screen chartplotter. The package includes a GPS sensor.
