The Imray story

Imray’s story can be traced back to the mid 1700s, when the hubbub of merchant ships filled the London Docklands and early cartographers were beginning to chart the world. We’re still a family business run by direct descendants of those pioneers. We draw on our long experience and rich heritage to serve the information you need to plan and navigate the seas today.
