Avoid Aquatic AV, I had two units both suffered hair line cracking of control panel after about 1 year.

Fusion now fitted very happy with it.

Careful of where you place the speakers if you have a compass mounted and use the compass. Also Fusion do a sub woofer, I bought one and its still in box pending going on ebay, I went to fit it and spotted my compass moving even before I stepped onboard, too big a magnet.

If you like listening to the fm radio you might want to think about buying a Antanea splitter, soem can split the VHF, AIS and FM signal through one bit of kit so you can use your main VHF antanae for all three.

We use a Fusion system and generally very happy with it.
We go through speakers at the rate of probably one a year and the head unit is usually good for about 3 years. However, ours is used daily for about 7 months of the year and really does get used heavily.

Ive just ordered up the BT-100 module and that gives you blue tooth connectivity on your Sonic Hub... or so I am told.
