The compass is the boat equipment, which helps us to show the direction where we are sailing. Plastimo, a leading compass manufacturer, is considered as the No. 1 in the world in manufacturing compass to ensure a safe journey.

Prior to the purchase of boat equipment, it is essential to establish what exactly your actual requirement is. It is first to be diagnosed the nature of your boating equipment required. If your interests happen to be day sailing, cruising, passage making, you may select a right card balanced for your proposed geographical destination.

A larger compass will be required if it is required to view from a distance. It is advised to use a compass as a boat equipment which can be read from a distance. It is essential that you pay heed to the color and design of the compass to ensure its compatibility with the boat.
