Admiralty standard nautical charts comply with Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) regulations and are ideal for professional, commercial and recreational use. Charts within the series consist of a range of scales, useful for passage planning, ocean crossings, coastal navigation and entering port.
Mariners should always use the largest scale nautical chart appropriate to their needs. In particularly busy seaways such as the English Channel, Gulf of Suez and the Malacca and Singapore Straits, the standard nautical charts are supplemented by mariners’ routeing guides which provide advise on route planning in these complex areas.
The “Fairway” Scheme of outfit management is designed to provide an efficient, cost-effective solution to the problems of maintaining navigation information to the highest standards on board. Ever faster turnaround in port, lower manning levels, increased vigilance by the inspecting authorities around the world, and your own desire to run a safe, efficient ship, dictate that we provide not only charts and publications quickly and efficiently but also assist in ensuring that the latest corrections and amendments are received on board regularly. By sending only the information required by a particular vessel, outfit maintenance is greatly simplified and therefore faster and less error-prone.
