Why there's nothing quite like Voyager

Voyager Planning Station is designed by our mariners and UX experts who all share the same belief – that navigation software should make complex things simpler, reduce time on mundane tasks and enhance safety. From the home page that tells you what you need to know at one glance to the simplest ENC updating, route planning and optimization – Voyager is a pleasure to use.

44.2% fewer compliance issues

Voyager Planning Station users are less likely to get navigation-related observations or be detained. That’s because Voyager simplifies routine tasks like index management, updating and route planning and lowers risk of human error.
