$149.00/ each

Code: 52-2401

The West Marine VHF85 handheld radio is a ruggedly built, compact unit designed specifically for boaters. It includes the latest essentials in marine radio technology. The large, green backlit LCD screen makes it easy to read, the intuitive functionality makes single-hand operation simple, and it features a long-lasting battery life of up to 11 hours.

Despite its highly respectable 11-hour battery life, the VHF85 also comes with a clip-on DC charger with AC adapter. Plug it in to the bottom of your radio and you can use it while it’s charging—without running the battery down.
