Excellence in Custom Marine Equipment and Propulsion Systems


    The new BENTLEY MARINE military and  aerospace derived naval technologies that makes yachting an even more rewarding experience.

Electronic Chart System (ECS):


    The BENTLEY MARINE ECS 1000 system is a standalone and portable single board marine computer unit, assembled in a waterproof case (available Black, Blue, Burl wood), with built-in GPS-receiver. The system can be powered by direct or alternate current and in case of main power failure, it uses its own battery backup.

    The complete configuration includes custom marine proof computer, external aerial , trackball and mini keyboard. Our ECS 1000 system  includes the patented exclusivedKART Navigator electronic chart software system, which operates with official S-57 cartographic data, produced by national hydrographic offices, as well as C-Map worldwide collection.

    BENTLEY MARINE ECS 1000 is intended for the automation of the captain's work and maximum safety at sea.

    It's superior performance is achieved by efficient data processing from external sensors with real-time display on the chart and by bringing into use special databases. A built-in GPS receiver eliminates the necessity of any extra hardware. It is also possible to connect DGPS Beacon Receiver to use GPS in differential mode. The unit can be also delivered without internal GPS receiver. To operate with the highest efficiency, the system uses both digital and analogue information from gyrocompass, log and echosounder and can also receive APRA messages according to NMEA-0183 protocol. BENTLEY MARINE ECS 1000 can be mounted on a horizontal or vertical surface and accepts direct or alternate current.  In case of a ship's main power failure, it automatically uses its own battery backup.
