The new Artica slim (left) and Zenith slim (right) compasses – Riviera Genova

The consoles of the latest generation of boats are increasingly modern and technological, but there is one accessory that always finds its place on the bridge: the compass. Especially the traditional magnetic compass, which is always reliable and very useful in case of electronics malfunctions. Riviera Genova, a company that has been designing and manufacturing nautical accessories since 1976, has launched two new slim lines of compasses, perfect for installation even inside planks that are already full of elements.

Zenith and Artica slim compasses by Riviera Genova

The two new slim compass lines are called Zenith and Artica and consist of four models each, with different colors to better suit any boat. Due to the small size of the ferrule, these bushings are very easy to install, even in tight spaces, with unobtrusive flush mounting. They are available either with a flat rose, which facilitates reading from above, or with a conical rose, which is perfect for reading the compass if it is mounted on axis with the view or higher, such as upside down on the t-top. Compasses
slim have a diameter of 12 centimeters and an apparent rose diameter of 8 centimeters, while the models in the
slim have a diameter of 11 centimeters and a reading diameter of 7 centimeters. Riviera Genova’s new compasses are RINA and MED certified and have a clear polycarbonate shell that resists impact, scratches, UV rays and weathering. The internal double gimbal mechanism allows the instrument to compensate for roll and pitch while ensuring its operation. They are ideal for boats between 6 and 11 meters in length.
