We spent 25 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top selections for this wiki. So you bought a quality radio for your boat, but you’re also going to need an equally amazing VHF marine antenna to make the most of it. These units are more than just pieces of wire — they’re delicate machines. Because choosing the best model depends on a range of factors related to both radio and vessel, be sure to read your owner's manuals and consider both height and gain before you choose. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best vhf marine antenna on Amazon.
