The Sea Chest Nautical Bookshop was established in 1989 and trades from modern retail premises in the Marina at Queen Anne's Battery in Plymouth, historic home of the Royal Navy and a superb natural harbour which is home to thousands of small boats. With this background it is not surprising that all our staff are sailing enthusiasts who are actively engaged in boating and knowledgeable on most topics, including our extensive array of electronic charts and navigation equipment.
The Sea Chest carries a complete stock of Admiralty sea charts and Imray Charts (from C1 to C70) covering Europe, The Baltic, The Mediterranean, Caribbean and American East Coast. We also have large stocks of new and second-hand nautical books, plotting instruments, videos, and software.
We publish an annual catalogue of Charts and Books which is mailed to customers at home and abroad.
