ADMIRALTY Paper Charts & Publications

As an International ADMIRALTY Chart Agent and distributor we provide comprehensive, official electronic and paper chart coverage of the world's commercial shipping routes and ports, with an extensive range of planning charts to support passage planning tasks. They are the most trusted and widely used official paper charts, complying with Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) regulations and are ideal for professional, commercial and recreational use.

The ADMIRALTY Nautical Publications are internationally recognised for their accuracy and excellence by mariners around the globe. These publications provide key aspects of navigation to support and guide the navigators on coastal navigation, port entries, tidal predictions, official maritime radio communications, official lights and fog signals, and emergency celestial navigation.


Imray Paper Charts &

Imray charts set the standard for the leisure sector with award-winning cartography which features a distinctive colour scheme, coloured light sectors and fine overprinted latitude and longitude grids to make plotting easier. 

Imray charts have been awarded official MCA (Maritime and Coastguard Agency) recognition for use on Code vessels and fishing vessels under 24m in length.

Imray pilot books and cruising guides provide sailing directions, reference information and inspiration for cruising areas from northern Europe and the Mediterranean to the Caribbean and Asia. They're universally regarded as the best available and the Imray guide is the definitive reference to the coast it covers.


NV Charts

The NV Charts are especially designed with the requirements of the yachtsman in mind. Fine contours and easy to distinguish colour graduations of the depth lines -like red for the 2-meter-line and blue for the 5-m-areas - characterise the NV Charts.

Presented in a handy, user friendly size, thick plastic envelope protects the charts, enabling them to be easily stored.

All charts are delivered as chart packages, which include paper charts, a companion digital App and in some areas an accompanying Harbour & Anchorage Pilot book, where more detailed information is required for safe local navigation.

The companion digital App for iOS, Android and Windows includes the same charts in digital format and a GPS ready navigation software, turning your mobile device into a chart plotter.


Nautical Charts of other Hydrographic Offices (Countries)

We stock Greenland charts and Faroe Island charts. We can supply Norwegian charts, SHOM charts and Icelandic charts at a moments notice as part of our print on demand (POD) service. In addition to this we can also supply NOAA charts via our print on demand (POD) service, but only if the chart is still available, as NOAA are currently in the process of sunsetting their entire paper chart catalogue.

We can order into stock and supply Canadian charts and Egyptian charts. Canadian charts are always available for purchase, but as stock comes to us directly from the Canadian Hydrographic Office, the transit time is usually 7 - 10 days, so on most occasions there will a bit of a wait before you receive any order for these charts. Egyptian charts are not always available and that is purely down to demand and production from the Egyptian Navy Hydrographic Department.


Electronic Charts

For superyachts, yachts, motorboats and workboats, choose from our full range of Garmin and Navionics electronic charts.

Garmin and Navionics charts are for use in dedicated marine chartplotters from various manufacturers. Our experienced staff will assist with the correct brand and chart format for your chartplotter.
