Where to buy charts

2399 Views 14 Replies 11 Participants Last post by  Yorksailor
Where is the best place to buy US charts? I have viewed them online, but would like to buy bigger ones that I have on the boat.

Thanks for the help!

I beleive that a Chart Book is probably your best bet.
To buy individual charts for your cruising area can be very expensive.
A chart book can save you hunderds of dollars.
Any good chandlery will be able to help you.
Richardson's has already been mentioned on other threads.

FYI, Maptech makes some good inexpensive chart books that also included a DVD. Down load the DVD Chart to your laptop and plug in a USB GPS and you have a second plotter you can use at the nav desk.
Right, I knew that...
Sorry about the error, I wonder if Richardson will change their strategy.

Another point, Print on Demand is very nice in that it gives you update the most current information, but at $28 a print, I would need to spend over $1,000.00 in charts to cover my area.
