About us

Riviera Charts has become synonymous with navigation. From our base in Antibes in the South of France, we support many private, commercial and naval vessels operating in the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, the Baltic and elsewhere around the world.

We are passionate about navigation and we have a track record of delivering bespoke solutions to demanding and exacting requirements. We are proud of our association with so many captains and deck officers serving on board state-of-the-art luxury yachts, commercial vessels and the navy.

Our team’s creativity in deriving solutions is founded on years of professional experience from the navy and commercial shipping which makes Riviera Charts a unique partner for every vessel anywhere in the world.

This all seems a long way from when we were founded by Commander Michael Healey in 1979. We were initially based close to Monaco, and in 1997 the business moved to Antibes from where it was better placed to support the growing demand from private and commercial yachts in the area. Riviera Charts was first appointed as an Admiralty distributor in 1980, the first such distributor in France, and since then has become the go-to for navigation advice and supplies in the area.

In 2013 we became part of the growing Novaco Navigation business. This means we are perfectly placed to support not only the demand for traditional paper charts and publications, but also the sophisticated digital technologies that support ENCs and digital publications, available through our sister company Novaco.

One thing has never – and will never – change. And that is our dedication to you, our customer. That’s why we’re always on the end of the phone or available in person to discuss your requirements.
