Riviera Charts was founded by Commander Michael Healey in 1979 and was initially based close to Monaco. 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 synonymous with navigation in the area.
In 1999 Commander Simon Jackson assumed responsibility for the business having just retired from a distinguished career in the British Royal Navy. The business has continued to grow and expand its range of services beyond its core chart distribution to become a premier provider of Chartroom Management solutions and other services to luxury yachts, the navy and other demanding maritime sectors.
The business draws strength from key partnerships with specialists organisations such as Imray (specialist leisure charts), Novaco (e-distribution of corrections), Primar (ENCs), the SHOM (French navigational products) as well as UKHO (paper & digital charts and publications) and is delighted to have the support of a superb team of highly motivated and qualified staff.
We recognise that everyone is unique and we strive to provide unique solutions to match everyone’s uniqueness.
