“Navigation begins with the right compass”

When properly sized, installed and compensated a marine compass is the most important instrument on any boat.

It will provide accurate, trouble-free heading references under the most adverse conditions without relying on electricity, radio signals or satellite communications. The most important criteria when selecting a compass are dial size and mounting style. Quality components aid accuracy, smooth response, stability and trouble-free operation. Although the size and shape of Ritchie Compass models may vary, this cut-a-way engineering illustration is representative of the mornden technology that makes Ritchie the World’s Best Marine Compass.
