The world’s leading Nautical Publications available as e-books
e-NPs are e-books for the mariner - allowing bridge crews to add NM updates faster and more accurately than paper publications, and giving them easier access to information they need.
Easy updates with NavStick Small, weekly NM update files can be regularly downloaded via the NavStick and added to e-NPs in seconds - far more easily and quickly than with paper-based products. This allows bridge crews more time to focus on other important duties and gives decision makers more confidence on the bridge.
Carriage compliance All e-NPs contain the same official information as their paper equivalents, and most Flag States have approved them as SOLAS carriagecompliant. e-NPs can also aid inspections by clearly showing when a publication was last updated.

ADMIRALTY Sailing Directions (Pilots) – valuable extra information for port entry and coastal navigation
ADMIRALTY Mariners Handbook (NP 100) – the comprehensive guide to seamanship and key aspects of navigation
