Marine Chart Services

Welcome………..

This site will give you access to many thousands of genuine (not copied) navigation charts, and publications, in different formats. Our prices vary from as little as £4.00 (for cancelled charts) to £24.60 (the current cost of new British Admiralty charts).

To use this site, just ‘click’ on the area link shown on the right for the chart area you require, to go to that section. For further details about this site & the different price categories, please scroll down.

We also sell New and used Imray charts, Danish, Swedish, Norwegian & French charts plus used USA charts of popular areas. Please use the links on the right to access these charts.

Our very popular Vintage Charts section is now divided into geographical areas, making it easier to find old charts of any areas that may interest you. Photos are included for every Vintage Chart, and these are priced from £7.95 ea upwards.

We can provide free paper catalogues covering the following areas – UK Home Waters (NP109); Baltic & Scandinavia (NP107); West Indies & Caribbean (NP105) or Mediterranean & Black Seas (NP106 ), whilst stocks last. If you would like a copy of any of these please email your request to us, including your postal details.

Alternatively the British Admiralty provide an electronic catalogue of all their products which can be downloaded from the following link:-

http://www.ukho.gov.uk/ProductsandServices/ADCatalogue/Pages/Home.aspx

You will need to click on the download link on the right for the full catalogue, (about 60Mb), the link for the updates is not necessary as the catalogue updates itself every time you use it.

Once the catalogue is loaded, please view the tabs at the bottom of the main screen and click the ‘Paper Charts’ tab. Then use the Globe at the top left to find the area you require, moving around the screen with the blue arrows & zoom buttons at the top.

Please note that we are not open to the public for viewing our products, but clients can pre-book a date and time to collect their orders if preferred. We accept credit card payments. Please call 01933 441629 between 0800 and 1700 Monday to Friday to make these arrangements, or to place a telephone order.


Within most sections you will have the opportunity to buy from 4 categories of chart or book. These are:

1) Cancelled – These pre-owned charts/books are no longer valid. They have either been withdrawn (charts with an ‘x’ suffix) or replaced by a newer edition of the same area, but not necessarily the same number. The information shown on the newer version may be considerably different to that of the cancelled version.

CANCELLED BOOKS AND CHARTS MUST NOT BE USED FOR NAVIGATION

2) 2nd Hand (not up to date) – These are pre-owned charts, that are still the current edition. (not up to date) However, they may have been corrected to when they were last used by the ship that carried them, but they have not been updated by us since receipt. For navigation use, these charts will need to be fully corrected up to date by the purchaser.

3) 2nd Hand (up to date) – These are current edition pre-owned books or charts. We will update the (corrected) charts to the latest Notice to Mariners issued at the time of purchase. Corrections added by us start from the last correction shown in ink in the small corrections section of each chart. Corrections added by the previous owner will not have been checked by us. For commercial ships, more stringent procedures apply.

4) New – These are new and unused charts, fully corrected to the date of purchase.

We also have a selection of new and used/pre-owned Pilots and reference books. Please note that Pilots, Radio Books and Light Lists etc. are supplied uncorrected. (We can correct them by hand if required, but these corrections will be charged at a “per week” rate.)
