Edition: 2022
Edition Date: 24.03.2022


Product number: 1506


Who wants to dare the great adventure of crossing the Atlantic is well equipped with the ATL3. The Atlantic islands - the archipelagos Madeira, Canaries, Azores and Cape Verde - are also described in detail in this atlas. If you want to go there, you may be drawn to the Caribbean. But the chart set is also ideal for trips to or from the previous island groups.

One of the most famous archipelagos are the Spanish Canaries. These are characterized by a diverse landscape, as not every island is the same as the other. For example, Lanzarote is known for its black lava rocks and beaches, while, in turn, Tenerife makes you think of Pico del Teide, the highest mountain in Spain. That can also be admired from the water. Those who appreciate the green will be happy in La Palma, the greenest island of the Canary Islands. Madeira, which lies north of the Canary Islands, is also worth a stopover. The smaller Portuguese archipelago is characterized by its mountainous landscape that even extends to the coast. The Azores further west to the open sea are also known for their diverse landscape, so there is one or more islands appealing to every taste. South of the Canary Islands are the Cape Verde Islands. This independent archipelago is not yet a tourist magnet and is also very varied, which is why a detour there is definitely worthwhile if you have enough time.

Thanks to the clear structure the skipper can quickly find approaches, harbours and anchorages and is informed of important navigational details that also appear in the NV Charts app. The chart series impresses with its optimal scales and balanced sheet cuts.

This chart set includes:

  • 6 oversegers (incl. Atlantic Planning Chart)
  • 13 Area Charts
  • 28 Detailed Charts
  • Code for App
  • Digital Charts & Navigation Program
  • Navigation Notes in English
  • Tide Tables
  • Paper Port Plans & Digital
  • Meets legal requirements for up-to-date paper charts on board


NV Atlas chart format

NV Charts nautical charts are available in an outstandingly practical, handy atlas booklet format and thus offer many advantages over formats from other manufacturers. The nautical chart series have been designed by nautical experts and passionate water sports enthusiasts with the needs of recreational boating in mind.

The NV Atlas has a very flat staple binding in the middle, so that the course triangle can also be used there without any problems. This innovative development makes it possible to look up charts quickly and always have them in the best possible order at the same scale. The NV Atlas is delivered in a plastic cover protected against splash water. This modern nautical chart format is very popular on sailing boats as well as on motor yachts and is the preferred choice of many of our customers.

NV Charts navigation app

All NV Charts nautical charts also include an access code to the digital nautical charts in the NV Charts app and can thus be easily downloaded. The charts are valid for 365 days from activation and can be used for offline navigation with the NV Charts app on iOS, Android, PC and Mac or also in the web browser.

The NV Charts app is the ideal addition on mobile devices. With the app, you can already plan a detailed route at home and thus prepare for your journey in the best possible way in conjunction with the paper chart. The app is intuitive to use and, thanks to an identical map image, you can orientate yourself on paper and digitally in a matter of seconds. The most up-to-date information is essential to navigate safely on the water with your sailboat or motorboat.

With the NV Charts app, you now have the opportunity to become part of the chart community. You can mark harbours, anchorages and navigation warnings on the digital nautical chart and also add interesting places beyond navigation, such as restaurants, with pictures and comments and share your experiences with other users. In addition, the NV Charts app offers an automatic routing function, search and all navigation functions for GPS navigation with your phone or tablet. More information at:

More PC navigation apps: NV Verlag / NV Charts nautical charts can also be used in many other compatible PC navigation programs such as NV Chart Navigator or Open CPN.

Our recommendation

If you are heading for Europe we recommend ATL1 (towards Spain) or ATL2 (towards Portugal) for onward travel. If you are heading for America we can recommend our atlases for the Caribbean Bahamas Cuba or Florida. We will be happy to advise you on this and if required we can also put together a selection of our cruising guides for the Atlantic islands.
