Professional charts for expert skippers
The BSH's small craft chart series are issued at the beginning of each yachting season. The survey vessels of the BSH systematically measure and record all navigationally significant changes in the German sea areas and provide reliable first-hand data for use in the BSH's official nautical charts.
This allows you to benefit from the high quality and safety standards of the official charts, as commercial shipping has done for decades.
BSH publishes small-craft charts for the Baltic Sea and the North Sea.
Official survey data. We use our own official survey data and observations, as well as direct contacts with other hydrographic institutions both at home and abroad. Reliable first-hand survey data are provided by the BSH's fleet of modern, state-of-the-art survey vessels, which systematically monitor the German sea areas for changes. Our customers receive the latest survey data and are informed immediately about any navigationally important changes.
