NEW Packs for the 2023 Season!

You asked, we listened – we’ve revamped the packs to make them suit your purposes better. We’ve removed the duplicates and added more buoys.  All packs now cater for both IALA A&B region, and even better – they are now even more cost effective!

The ultimate training aid

Our mission is to make getting to grips with marine navigation fun and interactive. Never before has understanding the global IALA Buoy System been made easier for students.

We offer an ever increasing range of really useful tools that assist your on-the-water sessions and classroom activities. All our training tools are designed and manufactured following input from hands-on instructors like you.

Available in two sizes which both include IALA A and B regions. Catering to a range of learning styles and ages means nautiNav makes learning accessible and approachable.

Why choose nautiNav?

nautiNav specialises in the production of nautical training aids, we believe that we can make parts of the rather ‘dry’ navigation training a bit more fun with our training models.

As part of our lineup, we supply a range of IALA specific buoys which are designed in a modular fashion so that you can set them up in a variety of ways to deliver training, from a fun simple puzzle to a ‘guess the buoy’ challenge – you are only limited by your imagination. We also offer a growing number of tabletop pilotage models which currently includes yacht, fishing boat and a large merchantman (CBD) that have ‘lights’ affixed to them.

Your on-board toolkit!

When you are on the water you need to be ready to use all the tools at your disposal to demonstrate techniques to your students and after some field testing we think we have covered all the bases with this new pack.

Crammed with the models you need and none that you don’t, this is aimed at small craft practical sessions and introductory navigation lessons.

Our tried and tested models really get the message across quickly and clearly. Buy online now!

Our manufacturing process.

Our product range is printed in-house using commercial FDM technology, this means that whilst the product is completely fit for the intended purpose and your students will welcome the ability to have something tactile to learn with, the manufacturing process is not the same as injection moulding – your products will have distinct radial lines on them and possibly an occasional blemish. We want to stress that these products are NOT a) toys b) scale models or c) smooth surfaced. They are aimed towards adults and supervised children, may contain pointy bits (cardinal mark top marks for instance) and it is a condition of sale that you understand this.
