Fun in the sun can only last so long and boaters need to start thinking about heading north. Florida and Caribbean cold fronts become less and less common as winter comes to an end which means hurricane season is right around the corner. Along with carrying the newest cruising guides and most detailed chartbooks we highly recommend updating your electronic charts before your trip in order to confidently cruise with the most up to date cartography.

If you need any help with your passage planning please email, call, and chat with Chris, Russell or any of our fine Bluewater Crew who have many years of experience bringing our cruising customers north. Feel free to stop by and see us in Ft. Lauderdale.

Follow us on Facebook for updates on new sales and changes to our hours.
For current users of Timezero Professional v1, 2, 3, and Trident & Catch, you can save 50% on the brand new Timezero v4.1 Professional Upgrade. This upgrade will bring an unbeatable value to your navigation accuracy and workflow for only $375 ($700 MSRP). To redeem this offer email your TZ number to our Navigation Experts at chris@bluewaterweb.com. Offer ends June 30th.

With Timezero v4.1 Professional you can expect,

• RTZ Route Format Compatibility: TZ Professional v4.1 can import and export routes using the RTZ format commonly used with ECDIS. *This feature requires purchase of an S-63 Module.

• New AIS / ARPA List NavData: Each cell displays more information (Name or MMSI, Range, Bearing, Speed, Last Update time, CPA and TCPA). You can directly click inside the NavData to select the corresponding target on the chart and center the screen around it.

• New Filters for NavData: By default, this NavData will display the first 4 filters, but right clicking on the NavData allows to limit the number of filters to 2 or expand it to up to 8 filters.

• Updated Charts: Chart data is constantly updated to the best cartography available. You can save up to 200 routes with 500 waypoints each.

• High Resolution Weather & Tide Forecasting: It is now easier to display and combine various oceanographic and weather data by adding “data layers” to the new Ocean-O Control Panel. The Ocean-O Control Panel can be opened or closed (similar to the NavData) to give maximum space to the chart once setup is done.

• Augmented Reality: Thanks to the augmented reality cutting-edge technology, TZ Professional allows you to display the active route and cross track distance directly on the camera video feed. Identify all boats equipped with AIS system surrounding you and prevent any collision risk. Visualize instantly your route points and buoys on your HD video stream even in foggy weather.
