For most people, binoculars are primarily a commodity that they use for fun in their free time on land. They observe from a great distance rare animals, birds on their flight to the south and snowy mountain tops on a hike. However, binoculars are an important tool not only on land but also at sea. In particular, marine binoculars used aboard a large ship or on a small dinghy are part of the basic equipment on any body of water.
These binoculars are necessary items at sea, with which signals from other ships and dangers can be perceived early on at long range.
In addition to the first-class optics offered by the binoculars, marine binoculars for seafaring are 100 percent waterproof. Waves, sea spray or raindrops must not obstruct the distant view under any circumstances. The modern binoculars therefore do not fog up even in high humidity or when water vapor forms during a change in the weather. The perfect optics of binoculars can save lives at sea in high waves. Therefore, the marine binoculars provide a clear view even in fog, in glaring sun and in frosty night. Moreover, the rugged housings are crafted with a corrosion-resistant coating.
