Steiner Navigator Pro marine binoculars
A top-of-the-range option popular among discerning sailors, the Steiner Navigator Pro is favoured by Ben Meakins, expedition sailor Bruce Jacobs of Yachting World and our own Jayne Toyne (aka. Flashheart).
“The superb optics give a bright picture even in low light and the sports-auto focus system means everything from 10m to the horizon is perfectly in focus,” writes Jacobs.
“They’re very highly recommended,” adds Toyne. “I don’t like going to sea without them.”

Canon 18 x 50 IS AW waterproof binoculars
Although not marketed as marine binoculars, this pair from Canon is particularly attractive due to its image stabilisation feature.
Canon estimates that you can get 4 hours of stabilisation from two AA batteries, so if you’re planning a long passage, it’s worth taking some spares.
Right now, UK retailer Currys is offering these fogproof and waterproof binoculars for £1,279, making for a £100 saving on the previous price of £1,379.
