A little history
NV Charts is Germany's largest publisher of nautical charts. For more than 40 years, the NV Charts name has been synonymous with competence and continuity in the publication of nautical charts and guides, through a team of hydrographers, cartographers and nautical geographers who combine their know-how. Their nautical charts are tailored to the specific interests of sailing or motor boaters. Not only boaters who have been sailing between the Baltic Sea and the Caribbean for decades trust NV charts, but also pilots of the Kiel Canal (which connects the Baltic Sea to the North Sea) sail with special maps from NV editions, as well as the US Coast Guard between Miami and Grenada.
The A3 format booklets include several maps at different scales of the area covered. France is divided into 11 zones, i.e. 11 booklets of 30 maps. Some areas have been remeasured and updated using aerial photographs.
NV Charts has the particularity of offering packs that include:
a paper booklet, bound with precision, nautical charts at different scales with visual color markers for changing charts and tabs indicating the scales - Nautic Way: "it's practical and very easy to use."
the same charts as in the booklet, but in digital version, to download, for PC, Mac, and tablet or smartphone with the offered software NV Charts Navigator Light - Nautic Way: "the NV Charts software is offered with the pack, it is simple but does the essentials."
