C-MAP, a supplier of digital marine cartography and cloud-based mapping solutions, said it has acquired i-Sea AS, a technology and consulting company focused on the marine sector.

C-MAP said i-Sea, of Oslo, Norway, developed and launched Embark, a user-friendly, cross-platform application for the boating community, based on in-house technology, in 2015. With more than 160,000 Embark users, i-Sea uses its scalable technology platform to create and deliver nautical maps to boaters around the world.

“We are committed to providing recreational boaters with the best experience to help them plan, navigate and enjoy their journey. The acquisition of i-Sea helps us to further deliver on that commitment,” Sean Fernback, CEO of C-MAP, said in a statement.

“We looked at a number of alternative boating apps and delivery platforms in the industry and I have no doubt we have picked the best and most advanced that will further improve the content, services and user experience we deliver to our customers. We look forward to working with the i-Sea team and integrating i-Sea technology to benefit C-MAP’s global mapping platform.”

“We are very happy to have become a part of the C-MAP team,” said Kristin Omholt-Jensen, CEO of i-Sea. “C-MAP has map data, talents and financial strength demonstrating their appetite to invest in future technologies and products. We are working very closely with our users; we engage them, we chat with them and we have developed Embark based on the user’s feedback! Together with C-MAP we will be able to scale Embark to boaters everywhere.”
