In a world dominated by electronics, they never fail you. If the power goes out, they bring you back down. We’re talking about compasses and binoculars. Two fundamental instruments on a boat, which in case of emergency are the basis for “saving your bacon”.

Where do you find the best ones? In the Indemar stand

At the Milano Yachting Week – The Digital Boat Show you will surely find some of the best models on the market. Let’s take a look at the stand of the historical accessories distributor Indemar that, thanks to a know-how and an experience of almost 50 years, has selected over time the most reliable and guaranteed products.

Such as Silva compasses and binoculars. A bit of history: in 1933, Björn, Alvar and Arvid Kjellström invented the first liquid-filled compass and Silvia’s adventure began with a bang. Not only was it the first compass of its kind, but it also set the global standard for how navigation works today.


At MYW, Silva is on hand with new compasses that meet these four, fundamental characteristics:

Durability: the capsule, made of clear, scratch-resistant acrylic, ensures excellent readability and durability.

Low friction: the combination of a sapphire bearing and a hardened steel pin minimizes friction, which in turn provides fast and precise movements.

Perfect damping: the no-spin compass is designed for perfect damping and accurate reading.

Accurate reading: the gimbaled suspension system allows for accurate reading and undisturbed operation, even when the boat is exposed to rough seas.



And now it’s time to deal with binoculars: at Indemar’s stand Silva proposes the two Eterna models (Navigator 3 and Marine 3), which are the real state of the art of boat binoculars, with specific functionality and design for boating. Solid, sturdy and of course waterproof: perfect in the open sea. The Navigator model also integrates a compass.

With a Porro prism design and great light output, a key feature is fixed focus – after a one-time adjustment for individual viewing – which gives you the freedom to focus directly on a desired object without manual focusing! Perfect in rough seas. Solid, sturdy and of course waterproof. Should you be unfortunate enough to drop it in the water, Eterna Navigator will float!
