nv-charts Now Available for Cuba

press release
Monday, December 12, 2011

nv-charts, a global supplier of precision charting products for mariners and cruising sailors, has now extended its coverage and produced new chart regions for the North Coast of Cuba. The coverage is divided into two regions; the northwest coast chart set is Region 10.2, and the Northeast coast is Region 10.1.


Cruisers interested in visiting Cuba and navigating the northern coast safely will be especially pleased  at the availability of NV Charts’ two regions, NW and NE, because they are simply not available anywhere else. Cuban charts certainly existed before, mostly surveys done by and for Soviet vessels, but one cannot easily locate or buy these charts.
 

Surveyor specialists from NV have been on the move surveying the Cuban coast in anticipation of more yachts making Cuba a destination. Having charted harbors, checked georeferencing points and double checked buoys and lighthouses, NV Charts has the newest cartography in both paper and digital format including navigation software for Cuba. NV Charts also covers the Bahamas, Puerto Rico, the entire Caribbean, Florida, and much more.
 

NV Charts began in Germany some 30 years ago. NV Charts are used by cruisers, racers, the US Coast Guard and the Baltic-Kiel-Pilots in Germany. NV Charts are based on NOAA and other data with NV’s own additional surveys and supplemental cruising information. NV Charts offers a complete navigation solution, using a system of numbers and colored tabs the charts are coordinated with our harbor pilot books a companion CD of digital charts and PC navigation software. All together Nautical Publications, the parent company of nv-charts, produces about 600 charts and over 1000 details & harbor plans, derived from our own cartography and surveys. These charts are designed with the prudent mariner in mind; coasts and anchorages are regularly updated through new surveys and aerials.
