Boat compasses: sailboat compasses and powerboat compasses

In our wide range of marine compasses, you'll find front-reading boat compasses, bulkhead-mount sailboat compasses, flush-mounted compasses and powerboat compasses designed for high speeds. With smart features such as double scale, three guide lines, built-in lighting for night navigation and high heeling angles, you have everything you need for safe navigation on the lake.

Compass for kayak, canoe, dinghy

The Kayak Compass 58 Kayak is easily attached to the kayak with a rubber band. The universal compass 70UN is well suited for kayaks, canoes, dinghies and small boats because it can be used both as a steering compass and a hand-held bearing compass and also floats.

Durability, low friction and accurate reading

Common to all our boat compasses is that they focus on:


The protective outer layer is made of transparent and scratch-resistant acrylic material that lasts year after year.


The combination of sapphire jewel and powerful steel minimizes friction for the navigation needle, providing fast and precise movements.


The gimbal-suspended system provides a stable and precise reading - even under the most demanding conditions on the lake.
