These Skipperi city boats from Yamarin have a Q plotter in them:

All the Skipperi boats are fitted with Yamarin Q, one of the branded versions of the Q Experience, that we here at Nextfour have designed and manufactured. Q plotters can also be found in all of Yamarin Cross boats for the season of 2020.
