We all love Christmas and New Year. But we all love gifts even more! Especially to give - to see bright and positive emotions on the faces of loved ones is worth a lot. Today we decided to help you in advance with a choice - what would be the best gift for sailors and yachtsmen for these holidays?
Of course, I want the gift to be not only pleasant, but also useful. I don't want the thing to turn out to be a trinket, which will be thrown on the far shelf and will not even be remembered. That is why we decided to put together a list of, if not super useful, but at least interesting gift solutions.
Garmin Quatix 6 watch
The latest generation of Garmin smartwatches brings additional mapping capabilities to the Bluechart g3. It also features a larger 1.3-inch always-on display.
As with previous generations, it can be used to interact with Garmin chartplotters and instrument data. Can also be used to control autopilots and a variety of yacht systems.
This affordable 6W waterproof and floatable portable radio. It is very compact yet versatile.
The lithium battery powered radio has short keys, a bright backlit screen, a water strobe, and a built-in FM radio.
When the two fisherman brothers could not find a reliable refrigerator, they founded the Yeti company. It produces thermoses that can both keep the hellish cold, and the wildest heat for several days - your drink is in a safe place.
The company's thermoses come in different colors and shades. In addition, they differ in the direction of use. One type is best for hot drinks, the other for keeping cold. There are also universal, classic options.
INFL8-5 inflatable VHF antenna
If you are planning a long haul or simply want to reliably use a powerful emergency antenna without cluttering your deck, this is your choice. This antenna will help you not to waste valuable time without losing functionality.
The Galaxy®-INFL8 VHF 3dB is an inflatable antenna that can be quickly deployed with a CO2 cartridge up to 5 feet (1.6 m) to provide a full 3 dB antenna with up to three times the range of any existing spiral emergency antennas.
The updated Creative Ropecraft edition will help you brush up on everything related to rigging and knotting, rigging and nets. The late Stuart Granger did his best - the book is a reliable reference, which should be the reference book of any sailor.
Nautical almanac Reeds 2022
This year marks the 90th anniversary of the Reeds Nautical Almanac. An annual compilation of all the nautical data you may need to plot a course around the Atlantic coast. It includes the UK and Europe from Denmark to Gibraltar.
A great gift for a real sailor! We hope you purchase everything you need to be in time before the holidays!
