Rockford Fosgate (, the industry leader in high-performance audio systems, is proud to announce that it has provided Bradenton, Fla.-based Yellowfin Yachts with a high performance marine audio system for its 24-foot Carbon Elite Bay Series boat, which will be featured during the 2015 Miami International Boat Show, held February 12 – 16 at the Miami Beach Convention Center, booth #3176 (Outside Bulk). The show boat has already been purchased by Capt. Steve Lamp of Dream Catcher Charters (Key West, Fla.) and will be added to his charter fleet after the show.

“After a tremendously successful launch during our recent 2015 Annual Product Showcase in Las Vegas, we are proud to provide Yellowfin Yachts with our new marine audio line,” said Vince Hormovitis, Rockford’s managing director of business development for Powersports. “Yellowfin Yachts’ all new Carbon Elite Series is the ideal craft to showcase our New Punch Marine amps, subs and speakers, designed to withstand harsh marine environments. We are proud to work with such a well-respected custom boat builder as Yellowfin Yachts on this project and bring the Rockford sonic signature on board this new high performance boat.”

The Rockford Fosgate system includes a PUNCH PM600X4, a 600 watt, 4-channel amplifier powering two pairs of PUNCH PM282 8-inch full range marine speakers, and a PUNCH PM500X1bd 500 watt, Class bd mono amplifier powering two PUNCH PM212S4 12-inch subwoofers. Element-ready highlights include two-part epoxy coating on circuit boards and element-ready stainless steel hardware, as well as waterproof, UV, and salt fog resistant drivers offered in two color options.

“Rockford Fosgate has been a legend in the mobile audio market for decades, and we are excited to work with them for this build that’s showcased for the world to see at the Miami Boat Show,” said Heath Daughtry, vice president of Yellowfin Yachts. “The Rockford Fosgate system is awesome, and is the perfect complement to our new Carbon Elite Bay Series. We are looking forward to the reaction both will get during the show.”

Added Capt. Steve Lamp of Dream Catcher Charters, “Since I was a kid, Rockford Fosgate always stood as the pinnacle in car sound systems for cars. I am really looking forward to working with them in my world, the marine environment. This thing is going to rock!”
