The B&G Vulcan 9 is a great-value sailing chartplotter designed for coastal cruising and club racing.

This easy-to-use, intuitive 9-inch multi-touch screen is packed with B&G’s unique sailing features including SailSteer and RacePanel.

Simply integrate with your existing system, expansion is simple as Vulcan is NMEA 2000®, Broadband Radar™, ForwardScan™ and autopilot ready and features built-in 10Hz GPS and Wi-Fi. 

Easy-to-use
B&G Vulcan has an easy-to-use, intuitive, multi-touch screen. Use the familiar pinch-to-zoom and swipe-to-pan actions to explore the many benefits to make your life on the water easier and safer; add waypoints and plan your route with ease.
 
Dedicated Sailing features for cruising and racing
With B&G’s award-winning sailing functions, you can see all of your key sailing data together on one screen or overlaid on charts for the modern sailor’s ultimate navigational view.

Simply add sailing instruments and sensors to activate B&G SailSteer, which will provide an intuitive graphic display of your Boat Speed, Wind data, Heading, Tide, Wind Shift Sectors and even Laylines.

It’s easy to add waypoints or plot a course; and with B&G SailingTime you’ll see waypoint arrival times based on a sailing course and tidal effects, rather than a straight-line calculation.
 
Simple integration
Get more from your Vulcan by expanding your system via the industry-standard NMEA 2000® network.

You can add sailing instruments and sensors, as well as autopilot, Broadband Radar™, ForwardScan™ or SonicHub™ to create a system to suit your needs.

Vulcan can be used as a secondary autopilot controller providing easy access to Intelligent Sail Steering, manual and auto steering functions, and Smart Maneuver functionality combined with intuitive menus for ultimate control.

B&G Broadband 3G™ or 4G™ Radar integrates with Vulcan to keep watch as you sail, with the ability to identify and track targets from 36 nautical miles away (4G) to right off the bow.
 
ForwardScan compatible
 With the addition of a ForwardScan™ transducer, you can see what lies ahead under the water with approaching-depth information. Explore poorly charted or unfamiliar waters confidently.
 
Built-in WiFi
 Vulcan features built-in Wi-Fi and offers easy access to selected online services, including PredictWind weather forecasts and routing, via marina or smartphone hotspots.

Or use the Wi-Fi to mirror the screen of your Vulcan 9 to a compatible smartphone or tablet, for a cost-effective dual-station solution you can take anywhere on board.
