MaxSea navigation software offers friendly, intuitive operating tools as well as the flexibility to use both raster charts on CD-ROM or vector charts on cartridge or CD.  No matter where you travel, you're guaranteed to be able to display the best navigation chart available for the area.  MaxSea also links weather information to navigation for faster, safer, easier passage planning--invaluable information for the offshore sailor.


MaxSea Navigator is ideally suited for the recreational boater and supports most popular charting functions.  If you're a serious offshore racer or cruiser, add modules for Weather Routing and Sailing Performance.
