Have your say on UKHO intent to withdraw supply and maintenance of Admiralty Small Craft Folios

The UK Hydrographic Office has announced that it is proposing to withdraw the supply and maintenance of ADMIRALTY Small Craft Folios.

ADMIRALTY Leisure Chart Folios contain A2 paper charts to support coastal navigation around the UK. Quality assured by maritime experts at the UKHO, each folio contains appropriate chart coverage and scales to help leisure yachtsmen, motor boat cruisers, ocean racing skippers and other leisure mariners maintain safety of life at sea.​   Average of 18 charts included in each folio, giving users comprehensive coverage and good value for money. Convenient and durable, with each chart printed on A2 heavyweight chart paper.

As an alternative to the ADMIRALTY Small Craft Folios, the UKHO now propose that established suppliers (such as Imray and NV Charts) in the small craft market will continue to be able to license data from the UKHO to serve those who do not wish to operate digitally.

Many of our customers choose ADMIRALTY Small Craft folios because of the familiar Admiralty chart look, good value for money, and as a valuable backup to electronic charts onboard.

Time for a response is limited and feedback is sought by the UKHO - email them at products.feedback@ukho.gob.uk by 31th October 2019.

ADMIRALTY Small Craft Folios are valued by many  yachtsmen, motor boaters and workboats under 24m LOA.  If they are withdrawn, there will be no A2 sized large scale chart coverage of the east coast of England north of Lowestoft, all of the Scottish coast (excluding Mull and the Firth of Clyde), the northern Irish Sea, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.
