Raymarine partners with Reeds
Raymarine has partnered with Reeds, the publisher of the annual almanac of navigational data for boaters. This collaboration gives users of Raymarine’s LightHouse Charts access to a wide range of up-to-date information from Reeds Nautical Almanac, and a host of new features and functionalities.
The full integration with Reeds’ data currently applies to covering Great Britain, Ireland, France, Spain and Portugal. In recognition of Raymarine’s long-term partnership with the publisher, subscribers to Reeds Nautical Almanac will receive a free one-year subscription to LightHouse charts.
The partnership with Reeds gives Raymarine LightHouse Chart users instant access on their chartplotter to the complete set of integrated Reeds Premium Content including aerial photographs, detailed chartlets and tide tables, marinas and facilities, fuel berths and other useful information for sailors and cruisers about their local area.
“The exceptional enhanced data which the integration with Reeds brings to users of LightHouse Charts is an invaluable enhancement to an already market-leading resource for safe and certain marine navigation,” says Richard Marsden, UK country manager, Raymarine.
“On top of this, obtaining a year’s free subscription to LightHouse charts upon subscribing to the Reeds Almanac adds real value while consolidating our close ties with this respected nautical institution.”
“We are delighted to be working with Raymarine to bring Reeds’ first-rate data to our market in a new way,” adds Elizabeth Multon, publisher for Reeds.
“The ‘king of almanacs’ might have celebrated its 90th birthday this year, but we are very much looking to the future, and the opportunity to collaborate with the superb team at Raymarine on the Lighthouse Charts has been extremely rewarding. We can’t wait to see them being used by our subscribers and Raymarine’s LightHouse Chart users.”
