Silva at sea

Navigating at sea requires specific skills, and a whole different area of expertise, compared to navigating at land. We offer a wide range of marine compasses, to use on various types of boats and vessels, all of which will help you find your way on water.

how to choose a compass

WHAT KIND OF BOAT DO YOU HAVE?
A powerboat compass has fixed lubber lines to maintain the best dynamics, while steel boats need compasses with D-correctors or soft iron correctors

WHAT IS THE SIZE OF YOUR BOAT?
The simple rule of thumb is that a boat longer than 7.5 meters (25 feet) requires a 100 series capsule or larger. This translates into an apparent scale of 100 mm or more.

WHERE WILL THE COMPASS BE MOUNTED?
There is a SILVA compass for every mounting alternative: bulkhead, dashboard, headlining, mast, ect.
