About Us

Isle of Wight Company MARINE DATA SYSTEMS has earned a worldwide reputation for excellence in the manufacture and supply of the best and most adaptable marine navigation and control systems for commercial, military, work and leisure craft.

Our equipment is proudly fitted in the military naval vessels of NATO, the Gulf States and the Far East. We work together with defence agencies and prime contractors for seamless product integration in new builds and re-fits.

In the leisure industry, you will find MARINE DATA products on the liners of the world’s leading leisure operators – including P&O™ and Disney®. In the fishing industry, MARINE DATA is there to help the world’s fishing skippers to harvest the sea safely under the most arduous of conditions.

Our Business Awards reflect the steady growth of our navigation equipment sales overseas, especially to Southeast Asia. We opened offices in Hong Kong and Singapore in 2011 and we plan to open offices in Shanghai and South Korea. Our sales growth in 2013 has resulted in expansion of our Newport premises in 2014 to accommodate extra capacity necessary for design, environmental testing and manufacturing.
This facilitated the successful delivery of large overseas orders from North America in 2015.

We’re proud that we can actually be at the forefront of technology and we can show that the Isle of Wight is a great place for innovation.
