First officially published in November 1800, navigation charts produced by the UK Hydrographic Office are an essential for sailors the world over and have an instantly recognisable, almost iconic, design. Now Admiralty Chart 2045, showing Outer Approaches to The Solent, is available to buy as a poster or canvas print to display in your home, office, or yacht club – showcasing the features of your local coastline, or recalling a favourite voyage perhaps.
Nautical chart posters are printed on gallery quality 190gsm satin paper, with pigment inks that last up to 80 years. Posters are supplied rolled in a tube and are suitable for framing.
Canvas prints are premium quality 330gsm poly-cotton material printed with fade-resistant inks, giving a textured satin finish, and hand stretched over a 3.8cm wooden frame.
Your choice of chart will be printed just for you. This means that we are unable to offer delivery on our express or next day services, and these items are not covered by our returns policy if it is not as you expected (although we will replace it if it arrives damaged).
Please note, these are supplied for decorative purposes only and must not be used for navigation. Strict Admiralty rules require that these do not show UKHO crest, margin information, and chart number and must not be reproduced in any form.
