Edizioni Magnamare is a publishing house specializing in nautical science. Since 1999, it has published the 777 Pilot Book series, thanks to the incredible work carried out by its travelling team.
The guide is updated after regular exploration of all moorings, from harbours to mooring buoys. The sea is experienced at first hand, in order to understand all the difficulties that every mariner has to face.
The 777 Pilot Book Series have been prepared in the tradition of the ancient portolans (pilot charts), that used to include charts, chartlets and also descriptions of harbours and shelters. As a result, users today have an authoritative, comprehensive
and useful tool to navigate in safety whilst maximising enjoyment.
