ADMIRALTY publications are the de facto standard for deep sea commercial shipping – but also for yachts of 24 metres or more in length for commercial use (under the Large Yacht Code). If you are unsure about the regulations, then please ask and we will be happy to assist.
ADMIRALTY publications are designed to comply with all IMO and flag requirements. We can provide all available publications, including:
Each volume of Sailing Directions contains quality colour photography and views, as well as information on navigational hazards, buoyage, meteorological data, details of pilotage, regulations, port facilities and guides to major port entry.
New editions are published on a regular basis and integrate significant information previously issued via the ADMIRALTY Notices to Mariners weekly bulletin in section IV.
The ADMIRALTY List of Lights is organised into twelve volumes which provide comprehensive information on lighthouses, lightships, lit floating marks (over 8m high), fog signals and other lights of navigational significance.
New editions are published annually and integrate all information previously published via the ADMIRALTY Notices to Mariners weekly bulletin in section V.
The ADMIRALTY List of Radio Signals is organised into six volumes which provide comprehensive information on all aspects of Maritime Radio Communications. This includes a listing of stations handling Maritime Public Correspondence, radio stations broadcasting weather services and forecasts, details of Global Satellite Position Fixing Systems and so on.
New editions are published annually and integrate all information previously published via the ADMIRALTY Notices to Mariners weekly bulletin in section VI.
ADP is a bundle of all ADMIRALTY digital publications supplied on a single DVD . They include the equivalent of Volumes 2 and 6 of the Radio Signals, all volumes of List of Lights and all volumes of the ADMIRALTY Tide Tables.
Compared to the paper version, the ADMIRALTY Digital List of Lights is much easier to use, with access to information on the 70,000+ lights around the world.
Similarly, Volume 6 of the ADMIRALTY Radio Signals provides maritime radio communications information for pilot services, vessel traffic services and port operations round the world, whilst Volume 2 provides compliant, digital positional and timekeeping references.
Updates to these publications are provided by DVD or electronically using the weekly update service operated by Novaco.
