Improved Charts

June 5, 2017

Significant Updates Released for Great Sound and Surrounding Areas

Wareham, Mass. – Navionics, the leader in content and location-based services for the recreational boating and outdoor markets, has released significant chart updates for waters in and around Bermuda. The new cartography provides numerous navigational objects, improved contour detail, and more, such as America’s Cup event-related content.

The Bermuda enhancements are part of Navionics ongoing global efforts to update charts with detail from the most current sources. Recent surveys and extensive research yielded a great deal of new content, such as navigational buoys, ferry routes, more than 3,000 obstructions and 200 new objects, including anchorage areas, beacons, buoys, mooring facilities, restricted areas and wrecks. In addition, the many coral reef barriers are now displayed in green for improved visibility and safer boating.

America’s Cup event content includes special anchorage areas for visitors, practice areas, race courses and spectator zones. One of the surveys targeted the entirety of Great Sound, where most of the races take place, to produce 0.5 m HD contours only available with Navionics products.

On plotters, boaters can get the new content by updating their charts via a simple download from or by purchasing Navionics+ Central & South America or Platinum+ Caribbean & Bermuda coverage areas. On mobile, Bermuda is included in the Boating app’s Caribbean & South American charts. Customers with an active chart updates subscription can simply update their charts. Others can download the free version of Boating App for a two-week trial.

About a month ago, I traveled to Charlevoix, MI for a special press event to introduce the H9 to a small group of journalists. The water and the weather were a bit cool but the sun was out and Lake Charlevoix was calm and the Four Winns H9 was very impressive. This is a 29-foot 11-inch luxury day boat with a 9- foot 2-inch beam and it features a fabulous expansive flat floor all the way from the bow rider area to the transom and the swim platform.
