Garmin Airmar B164 Thru-Hull Dual Frequency Transducer Review

Garmin Airmar B164 Thru-Hull Dual Frequency Transducer

Enhance the efficiency of your fishfinder with Garmin Airmar B164 Thru-Hull Dual Frequency Transducer, boasting a high-powered 1kW 20° tilted element. Specifically designed for fast, trailered tournament-sportfishing vessels, the B164 transducer offers a solution for boats where a high-performance fairing is unfeasible.

With a flush-mounted stainless steel housing that extends less than a quarter inch outside the hull, the transducer won’t be damaged even if placed on the trailer rollers and bunks. Its ceramic arrays are strategically tilted internally, delivering an exceptional vertical beam that concentrates maximum energy directly beneath the boat, enhancing the power of your fishfinder.
