Why so many boats with radar?
In my process of trying to buy a new to me used boat, I'm seeing a lot of boats that have radar. Some of these boats are even 25' Center Console's. I understand that radar can be a life saver for collision avoidance but is there something else that people are using it for? I've never had a boat with radar but I'm guessing that it is primarily used if you want to anchor up somewhere and sleep on the boat and then it would sound an alarm to wake you if something came within a certain range. Is this the main use or are there other things the radar can be used for? I'm just surprised at how many boats have it and it seems like they're all raising their price because of it and I cant see any use for it for me. Thank you.
