The collaboration between the two marine industry tech companies brings availability and dealer network in Germany for the innovative Q Experience ecosystem. The Q Ecosystem marine displays, all-in-one design, include navigation, gauges, NMEA, entertainment, mobile connectivity with app and a lot more as built-in features.
ELNA GmbH and Nextfour have announced a partnership for distribution and sales for the entire Q Experience product ecosystem. The collaboration will finally give availability for sales and support for the German market. The first public appearance will be at the world’s largest boat show BOOT 2023 in Düsseldorf 21.-29.1.2023, where ELNA will present the whole range of Q Experience products at their booth in Hall 10 stand C17. Representatives from Nextfour will be available at the show for the whole time
In 2023 The Q Experience will finally be available for dealers and consumers through a series of national distribution networks and the cooperation between ELNA GmbH and Nextfour is now one of the first ones to be launched. Until today the Q Experience products have only been available as factory installed units with manufacturers own labels. The current installation base is more than 20.000 units. This has been our own choice until now, says Niklas Öhman, CEO for Nextfour Solutions. We have worked and will still work closely with the boat, engine and powertrain manufacturers and developers helping our partners to promote their brand identity and customer specific needs. The Q Experience platform is certainly the best and most flexible platform available for turnkey development. Currently the Q Ecosystem has been branded for more than 30 brands. Most known for Buster Boats, Yamarin, Cross, Askeladden and Grand.
After several years of strong demand through both international markets and end-users, the Q Experience will now be available under the Q Experience brand through the dealers. One major difference for our new distribution partners will be how to work with the local boat and technology manufacturers and offer them also the white-label model as an option.
ELNA with its leisure marine brand FERROPILOT is well-known and a technically strong partner with extensive dealer and partner network in the German marine industry. The company is especially known for providing a reliable and high level of support, sales stock, and service.
“As a leading partner in German marine electronics for over 40 years, our service and support give confidence to our marine partners. The products have been robustly designed and we can rely on the direct support from Nextfour´s R&D and after sales organization,” says Leif Schick, Managing director of ELNA GmbH. “We have started an excellent relationship with Nextfour and are thrilled to introduce the distribution to the German market”.
