You might check out the SR161 from Milltech Marine, outputs rs-232 serial data, about 190$us. That way you are not tying up a processor, a radio, etc, and it is only 60$us more.

If you have a laptop then their black box unit, if not then the one with screen. I think in the US Sitex sold them, but NASA is still in the UK.

West Marine recently lowered the price on their Clas B unit. Send and recieve box...$499. I think its the best price for a Class B unit. You can use discount codes and free shipping and west rewards to get it down another 10-20%.

fyi: AIS is NOT better than a radar, it is different.
Fishermen and other yachts might not have a transponder.
And ships with an AIS are not obliged to switch it on.
AIS is only supplementairy info and a nice add-on.
