Whether you're a frequent traveller across Seachest or it's your first time dropping your digital anchor, we're excited to announce the launch of our brand new website, so welcome back! Along with a fresh lick of a paint and a few digital advancements to help fuel your next sailing trip, we now have a fully responsive website so you can plan your next sailing trip and choose your desired charts from a yacht, a harbour or even at home when you're relaxing on the sofa - it's got as easy as that to get your sailing fix! In case you're in unfamiliar waters, here's a few big changes to look out for on our new site that we hope you love and will find as useful as us!
One of the most digitally advanced aspects to our site is our chart finder, a much more updated and user friendly finder than what we had before. The concept is pretty simple, and it's the perfect place to head if you're a new sailor and don't know what you're looking for or if you're an experienced seafarer and know exactly what charts you need for your next trip. An integral starting point for helping you to plan your journey, our chart finder can be used in 3 easy ways;
Search By Location (or GPS co-ordinates) - this option is perfect if you know where you're going but don't know what route to take and what your options may be. In searching your location you'll be delivered with a whole host of charts that cover the area and which you can then choose to streamline and narrow down to the one that would suit your journey best.
Search By Chart Number - An excellent way to find that chart you know you need in a few seconds flat. Either search the number or scroll through the list, then simply click on the chart on the map and add it to your cart.
Draw Your Route - Not sure where to head or know your destination but not sure what route to take? Start by plotting your route on the map and we'll do the rest for you! We'll display all the charts that cross your route, you can then clear your route or clear your charts at any point and start your search again too.
If you need any further direction to using our chart finder, check out our Chart Finder Help section!
A little bit of fun, but something that is sure to catch your eye as you land on our homepage is our Admiralty Charts Cinemagraph banner - is the sea really moving or is it a still picture that moves? Either way, we promise you'll be transfixed to it at some point when you land on our site! It's a top design trend of 2017 and one we hope is here to stay, it makes waiting for your next sailing holiday to come around that bit more bearable!
Seachest prides itself on its fully and daily updated stock of Admiralty Charts and Imray charts which we believe will always be fail safe directions for sailing, we also have a range of electronic charts and sailing instruments to help make your next trip or exam preparation a lot easier.
