Nv-charts, a global supplier of precision charting products, extended its coverage and produced new chart regions for Chesapeake Bay in time for the 2012 cruising and boating season.

The coverage is divided into North and South regions. The North region includes Delaware Bay and the Chesapeake/Delaware canal, coverage from Cape May, N.J., to the Potomac River; the Southern region continues down to Norfolk, Va., and its environs.

Each paper chart set includes a CD containing the entire set in digital format for use on PCs with navigation software and GPS input; a harbor and anchorage pilot book for the region, with comprehensive navigation and cruising information and regional descriptions, weather and tide information and cruising destinations, harbors, moorings and anchorages, each entry referenced on the charts; and a clear vinyl waterproof cover.

Nv-charts are based on government data confirmed and/or revised through Nv-charts’ own survey vessels.
