Mr ginger is quite correct. Fully waterproof. It's very new to the UK market, previously Icom's DSC offering was a two-unit solution. Icom are, IMHO, the best in terms of quality and support for marine VHF's.
Downside is that it's over £600 rrp.
I got a deal at the boatshow, hard to say the exact price since i had the GPS, transducer etc. etc. bundled together. It was from Nautequipe, 01299 251005, very helpful. I've used them since and they were equally helpful. Their list price is £570incl.
As a final note i beleive it's icom's first waterproof offering with a disconnectable speaker mike. Note the 'speaker' part, essential on a RIB.
