Navionics on Monday announced the acquisition of Wavey Line Charts.
“Wavey Line has developed a landmark portfolio over the decades,” said Giuseppe Carnevali, president and founder of Navionics. “We feel honored to have been chosen to assume the responsibility of carrying forward Wavey Line’s great legacy in the Caribbean.”
Bob Gascoine and Jane Minty, Wavey Line owners and founders, have spent years charting those waters with their expertise as surveyors, divers and mariners, as well as cartographers.
“Today marks the start of a new chapter for Jane and me,” said Gascoine. “Wavey Line Charts reflect our passion for exploration, boating, and island life. We are proud to see this transition and believe Navionics will continue the Wavey Line tradition for many years to come.”
A long-standing data partner with Navionics, Wavey Line chart coverage has provided pilotage notes and course lines in addition to updated bathymetric and depth information for some of the most dynamic and technically difficult approaches in the southern islands.
The companies said Wavey Line and Navionics customers can expect continued Caribbean and Bahamas updates, eventually merging the best of both companies, downloadable to mobile devices as well as plug and play cards with an active Daily Updates subscription.
