Wanted used Garmin equipment

I thought I would ask, I am looking for used and not abused Garmin MFD's anything above the 4208 through 6200 series MFD's, a Garmin 18" or 24 Radar unit, and or 1 or 2, Garmin 740 or 741xs plotters. In addition I'm looking for VHF 200 radios or any Class B AIS transponder that hasn't been programmed with an MMSI. If you want to part with any NMEA2000 Garmin NMEA2K displays or sensors (except gas engine flow sensors) please pm or e-mail me.
I'm trying to outfit a 1976 Gulstar 36 Mark II trawler with dual helm stations.
I'm also looking for the Gam(?) SSB counterpoise ground system for my ham radio ICOM IC7000 and AT140 auto tuner.
Thanks in advance.

I can't help you on equipment. But I can tell you those "new style " Garmin 741xs units are great, we just installed a couple.

Yeah we would all love to buy the latest garmin equipment at used prices. I have seen used garmin stuff on ebay selling for cheaper than new, but it's not exactly selling at fire sale prices. I would check there.

West Marine had the 740s for $699 but it ended last Sunday. Good Luck.

I have had and tried most of the 4200 line up, the 740's I like the 741xs because it has an analog video input and supports various sonar/ chirp and depth finder options the WiFi component isn't so importent to be but I might be able to use a tablet in the lower helm if I get one of the newer xs models. My 6212 is the primary MFD on my Mainship. Since I'll be selling the Mainship soon, I may install a 4212 in the 6212 place at the upper helm. There's a bunch of used stuff from China I'm not touching those units.....

Don't know if you have looked at the refurbished units. These are generally units with a warranty issue that the factory refurbished and a dealers sells as refurbished with a warranty for some thing like 30% off. Take the unit model and enter "Garmin (unit model) refurbished" into a Google search and see what you come up with.

Will have a Garmin 18" radar antenna available shortly if you are interested.

I ended up sourcing everything with deep discounts up to 50% off. For the Radar I ended up with the older Garmin GMR21. I will probably swap it with my Mainship's GMR18HD.
Thanks,
Bill

No need that's not the type of plotter I would use for anything other than an emergency. My configuration will be a new Garmin 741xs, connected to an external GPS antenna, a 740s connected to the NMEA2K network and a GMR18HD Radar will be connected to the 741xs, I have 2 Garmin VHF 200 radios they will have my new MMSI programmed into them and be on the NMEA2K backbone, a GPS19X as a NMEA2K GPS source, an AIS600 class B transponder w/my MMSI will be on the NMEA2K, a Maretron heading sensor NMEA2K, a dual frequency AirMar sonar/ depth finder transducor will connect to the Garmin 741xs, a GXM52 SIRIUS WX receiver on the NMEA2K buss and a GWS-10 wind direction and speed sensor will round off the electronics.
I have everything and anticipate installing this equipment at the lower helm station since I'm almost positive the upper bridge will be removed.
Those who sold me equipment on this forum I would like to say thank you.
Bill
