In an effort to help boaters prepare for Cuba’s welcome of U.S. boats, NV Charts is releasing all four Cuba chart sets in NV Charts’ atlas-style format.

“Recently the U.S. government issued new rules regarding travel to Cuba,” NV Charts CEO Hasko Scheidt said in a statement. “This is a momentous step forward for the boating industry because now, persons traveling to Cuba can sail there on their own vessels, and with others. Our completely new Cuba charts in paper and digital format will help recreational boaters or charterers explore the coast of Cuba in safety and with confidence.”

NV Charts’ four regions 10.1 through 10.4 cover the four quadrants of the Cuban coast — northeast, northwest, southwest and southeast — and include harbor and anchorage details.

The company said the new Cuba chart atlases are sold as “combi-packs;” each contains all of the information for that area and is priced at $99.80. The company said each release is up to date and meticulously surveyed.
