For more than 50 years, the Marine Block has been the reference nautical guide for boaters.
The Marine block and the Coastal block comply with the regulations in force and can therefore be taken on board as provided for by the safety equipment. The Marine block is designed for navigation beyond 6 miles from a shelter and therefore contains a logbook, while the Coastal block is sufficient for navigation up to 6 miles from a shelter.
These nautical guides are essential to complete the nautical charts, both in coastal navigation and in offshore navigation.
They are essential for navigating safely, but also for understanding port entrances or other geographical features: open moorings, moorings, approaches and ways points. They list nautical shops and other services for local boaters.
