Nv-charts, a global supplier of precision charting products, extended its coverage and is producing new chart regions for the north coast of Cuba.

The coverage is divided into two regions; the northwest coast chart set is region 10.2, and the northeast coast is region 10.1.

“Cruisers interested in visiting Cuba and navigating the northern coast safely will be especially pleased at the availability of Nv Charts’ two regions, NW and NE, because they are simply not available anywhere else,” the company said in a statement. ”Cuban charts certainly existed before, mostly surveys done by and for Soviet vessels, but one cannot easily locate or buy these charts.”

Surveyor specialists from Nv-charts have been surveying the Cuban coast in anticipation of more yachts making Cuba a destination.
