Initial Chart Supply for Ship New Buildings
A key area to get 100% correct and on time is the supply of all the nautical charts and publications needed for new buildings, keeping your vessel legal, avoiding unnecessary purchases and saving time and money.
KH Charts have the expertise to do this for you. Call our sales office and provide the vessel type, size and trading pattern and we design the chart outfit you need to be compliant to IMO SOLAS chart and carriage requirements. Nautical Charts are professionally packaged in high quality canvas folio covers. Publications are delivered fully updated with cumulative update packs. The full index of products supplied, along with a customised correction log, is presented in a ring binder for monitoring of new editions and ISM compliance.
Fully updated Nautical Charts and Publications
Nautical charts and publications are supplied up to date using either KH Charts unique loose leaf service or customised supplements. Other publications are supplied with relevant supplements and amendments up to the date of supply.
KH Charts provides expert assistance from full coverage design based on ship type information, trading routes, size and Flag State to validation of your chosen list of navigation charts and publications.
New Buildings Transit Folios
