The latest edition of the Bowditch. The American Practical Navigator, first published in 1802, was billed as the "epitome of navigation" by its original author, Nathaniel Bowditch. The text has evolved with the advances in navigation practices since that first issue and continues to serve as a valuable reference for marine navigation in the modern day. The publication describes in detail the principles and factors of navigation, including piloting, electronic navigation, celestial navigation, mathematics, safety, oceanography and meterology. It also contains various tables used in typical navigational calculations and solutions, including the formulas used to derive the tabular data. - NGA

American Practical Navigator (Bowditch) 2019 Edition - A word from a customer

For every mariner the Internet has 2 distinguished features - American Nautical Services as a first point of search for publications and Bowditch's American Practical Navigator as first result and a must-have book (which is what every sailor infers sooner or later regardless of the owned literature). Service and products being pristine, it is a definite recommendation as a best-buy product.

Great Service

I was very pleased to be able to access full size print versions of Bowditch and H.O. 229 Sight Reduction Tables at a very reasonable cost. The service was excellent.
