navigation & ECDIS

The Navigation and ECDIS team is focused around a team of senior navigating officers. With access to external expertise and current serving officers, the team is able to produce relevant and up to date guidance that ensures there are no surprises for the seafarer faced with a modern or new bridge setup. Using the company's own expedition vessel as a testbed, the Witherbys team continually updates publications to ensure they maintain their relevance, reflecting any regulatory changes or guidance in the process.

The publications on navigation, with a particular emphasis on ECDIS and passage planning,  have been developed over a period of 20 years, continuously refined and updated to reflect the challenges and demands faced by navigating officers in the global merchant fleet.
