It’s hard to believe that MaxSea is already 20 years old. The company was founded in 1985 by a team of engineers determined to bring the power of personal computers on-board using hacksaws and soldering irons so that the systems could be run on 12-volt power supplies.

From this inauspicious beginning came a daring vision: A personal computer on every commercial vessel. Nineteen years later, it seems so obvious. But at the time, when only a handful of people knew what GPS was, it was a great leap of faith and daring.

This revolutionary idea not only made technology a powerful tool for all of us at sea, it also helped grow a new industry that has changed our world. Today, we continue to expand the possibilities of electronic navigation by developing new ways to empower both recreational and commercial sailors anywhere on the planet.

At MaxSea, we strive to be the leader in the invention and development of the industry’s most advanced information technologies, including marine navigation and electronic charts. We translate these advanced technologies into value for our customers through our professional distributors and dealers worldwide.

In 2004, and after an extensive evaluation of the market and thoroughgoing deliberation, FURUNO ELECTRIC CO., LTD., and MaxSea International have decided to form a technical alliance to provide an ultimate solution to navigation data management system.The result of this groundbreaking technical alliance is the development of MaxSea-NavNet software, which presents mutually complementary integration of NavNet and MaxSea software to offer a sophisticated navigation system.

The MaxSea-NavNet software brings NavNet radar, Fish finding and chart control directly to your PC.The critical combination of the navigation network and software is the ultimate solution to serious boaters.

Once again, MaxSea is the forerunner and invents a new generation of software based on the most recent technologies.

In 2008, MaxSea is launching the Time Zero Technology that will revolutionize the world of navigation software. Time Zero is a totally new technology, entirely created and developed by MaxSea.

This technology was even selected by Furuno for the development of its new NavNet 3D product generation.

Thanks to Time Zero, MaxSea offers a new ultra fast cartographic engine with unparalleled seamlessness and speed of zooming. Nautical charts, 3D data, and satellite Pictures are combined to provide you with the best maritime information and a realism that has never before been achieved.
