Prices Increases on AIS Systems
We're sure you're aware of the current situation regarding availability of microprocessors which is affecting all areas of industry. Lead times now are running into more than 60 weeks on many items and are extending on a daily basis with suppliers "de-commiting" on previously scheduled orders. We expect this extended lead time to continue until at least 2023.
We have therefore taken the decision to go out to alternative suppliers and pay a huge premium for certain microprocessors and components. A $4 part is now costing $140 and clearly we can't absorb these inflated prices. It’s also clear to us that Governments have placed pressure on the chipset makers to prioritise supply chains of national importance such as automotive - and these industries supplying a £30000 car can absorb some of this. However, even with their ultra slick supply chains, they have lead times of over a year. So we have a stark choice to increase prices to continue selling products. Dealer and distributor discount structures remain unchanged.
Over the past year, the Digital Yacht team have worked super hard redesigning products with alternative components and using innovative sourcing solutions. We’ve looked for physically similar family processors and re-written 10000s line of code to make them compatible. We've had a good track record for deliveries compared to many others in our sector. However, we can’t do this in every design so are reliant on supply.
I'm sorry for the bad news. We've always been a brand that champions boaters and offers great value and we'll continue to do so - reviewing prices all the time.
