I'm looking for stores that buy used charts

I was just wondering if anyone knows any stores and/or websites that would buy used charts of the northeast coast of America and southeast coast of Canada from 2008. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

On the contrary. I have bought a dominant portion of my charts over the years used and out-of-date. Many (maybe all) shipping lines replace charts regularly with the latest and their discards are in perfect shape. A quick update from Notice to Mariners and they're definitely good enough for cruising sailors.

Unfortunately I have no need for the charts on offer here nor can I offer any advice on who in your area would buy them but I wonder how many cruisers always buy new charts.

There is and always has been a market for decent quality used (read out-of-date) charts

I have looked for and bought used charts on Ebay before. There may be better options around locally for you, but if not I would give it a try.

How old is out of date? 2008 doesn't seem all that old to me. How often do you all buy new charts?

Ebay or Craigslist

You could sell them either way. Good deal for both parties and you may even be surprised. You could start with what you believe the minumum value and get offered more.

A lot of the charts used even by shipping lines today are predominantly made up of observations by Cpt James Cook!!!

The majority of changes to charts are navigational stuff (lights, bouys, etc), not reefs, islands or geographical stuff.

I still use coastal pilots printed in the '60s and mostly they're still good.

Try the SSCA website. Cruisers buy and sell charts all the time in their "Marine Flea Market" section.
