SHOM charts

SHOM (Service Hydrographique et Océanographique de la Marine) is a specific establishment of the French Navy whose main mission for 300 years has been to measure bathymetry, design nautical charts and distribute them. The establishment also distributes a certain number of nautical documents that are useful or even essential for navigation: RIPAM, buoyage, current charts, etc...

Picksea is a SHOM Approved resseler and can therefore offer you all the publications of this establishment.

For civilian or military sailors, whether they are commercial, fishing or pleasure craft, safe navigation requires the best information to understand the maritime area from a nautical point of view, to find their way around and to choose their route, taking into account the weather conditions and traffic.


The L-chart collection is a selection of nautical charts that are perfectly suited for recreational boating. They provide the same information as the classic charts and are updated at regular intervals. Picksea has a selection of the 20 best selling and most popular SHOM L charts in stock. You can also find the SHOM charts dedicated to exams boating (offshore licence) or merchant navy.
