SMM is the biggest maritime show in the entire world, and we are honoured to be a part of it, and to share the experience with all other nations attending.

We first exhibited in 2004 and have been attending ever since. 

On show we will have our top of the range magnetic compass, which we have been manufacturing since 1812, our Walker line, which includes speed logs, weather systems and anemometers. 

With the new regulations coming closer and closer we will be showcasing our Navmaster ECDIS 800 and Navmaster ECDIS 1200, ask any of our staff about our computer based training options (CBT). 

We look forward to seeing all the other exhibitors at the show, and should you have any queries regarding our services, products or simply want to say hello, then we are located in Hall B6.

Hope to see you there!

It was a good lesson in understanding the importance and functionality of both electronic and traditional methods of navigation and one that continues to be relevant today.

Whilst this is now 16 years ago, the relevance is still valid.
