Imray pilot books, almanacs and cruising guides

Imray pilot books and cruising guides provide sailing directions, reference information and inspiration for cruising areas from northern Europe and the Mediterranean to the Caribbean and Asia.


They're universally regarded as the best available and the Imray guide is the definitive reference to the coast it covers.

The best sailing authors

The attention to detail and high standard of production is unrivalled and is the result of our successful long term partnerships with some of the best sailing authors.

Amongst the well known names are Tom Cunliffe, Rod and Lu Heikell, Peter Cumberlidge and Dag Pike. We have close relationships with prestigious cruising clubs including the Cruising Association, the Clyde Cruising Club and the Royal Cruising Club Pilotage Foundation whose books cover both near and distant waters. 

Reference and navigation

There are also a handful of important titles covering various topics including navigation. Norie’s Nautical Tables has been a best seller for over 200 years. 

Maps and guides

A series of maps and guides to the inland waterways of the British Isles and Europe complements the list of marine titles.

Stay up to date

All our books are kept up to date via downloadable supplements. Many of them are also published in foreign languages. 

Digital cruising guides

We publish PDF versions of most of the Imray pilot guides.  These offer the same quality and carefully-checked content of our printed pilot guides, but you can view them online on your desktop or load several onto your mobile device at once to save space in your luggage.  


To buy your Imray PDF book, go to the Product page on this website, and click on the 'Buy PDF Book' tab.  This will take you to the Google Play Store.  


This offers you an option to preview before you buy.     

PDF books can be read on a wide range of smartphones, tablets and desktop computers including PC, Mac, iPad, iPhone, Android, Nook, Sony Reader etc.   

PDF books are not available via iBooks but Apple users can download Google Play Books or another PDF book reader app onto your device.  They are not supported for Kindle.
