This best selling app for sailors and sea lovers is finally available for both Android and iPhone!

Boatie is a handy source of information for all who enjoy recreational boating in UK coastal waters - whether sailing or motoring, either in a motor boat, yacht or dinghy.

The 5 sections are:

Navigation: displays your current GPS position, speed-over-ground (SOG), course-over-ground (COG), as well as distance and heading to user-configurable waypoints. Waypoints can be stored in folders. A built-in compass also shows the bearing and distance to your selected waypoint.

Weather: displays the current UK weather general situation, inshore forecast, shipping forecast, and 4 day synoptic charts for the UK and NW Europe.

Tide: displays 7 day tide tables for over 700 primary and secondary ports from UK, Ireland and the Channel Islands. Also displays calculated sunrise and sunset times, the current moon phase and calculated moonrise and moonset times.

Tidal Stream: displays calculated tidal streams for common tidal diamond around the UK for up to 7 days. You can zoom into any specific area of the map around UK waters for more detailed tidal information.

Reference: an useful set of information easily to hand whether you're out on the water or doing your theory course. It currently includes:
- Day shapes
- Navigation lights
- Sound signals
- Beaufort scale
- Forecast terminology
- Inshore forecast areas map
- 5 year lunar calendar
- Signal flags
- Phonetic alphabet
- VHF channels
- IALA A buoyage

So, next time you are meeting your crew in the pub or planning your weekend on the boat, use Boatie to get the key information you need on your Android phone.

Please do let me know your feedback - particularly if you find problems (I will do my best to address any issue if you contact me directly) or if you have suggestions for future improvements. I'm also very grateful for the positive reviews entered in the Google Play store - it’s a great way of showing your appreciation.

No menu option on galaxy note 4 This app is great on most phones but I have just got a samsung galaxy note 4 and there is no menu button visibility unless someone can advise otherwise

Richard Wright

BOATIE Not working on my Samsung galaxy. Reinstalled but still does not work

White Dragon

doesnt work no communication from seller, waste of a fiver

Kev Barnes

Decent content but neglected by developer Sadly not updated for some time, developer appears to have committed efforts to iOS because that version is pretty impressive. Perhaps the Android market isn't as great, who knows.

Billy Crowley

Boatie is a fantastic 5 stars for boatie We go to the Boatie app for tides and weather. When going to sea for search and rescue call outs. Thanks boatie

Mick Leonard

Looks Good After not being able to open the functionality a couple of e-mails to the developer got me sorted out. I've yet to explore all of it but the bits I've looked at seem great.

Nigel Doyle

Very good indeed This app is worth the money. It had a great facility to track waypoints and get weather. The tidal steam data is a good visual but you don't get sets and rates. That is one thing I would like to see added. Otherwise I love this app and never sail without it on hand.

graham lundegaard

Info available for free elsewhere As apps go this is rather expensive. Most of the information such as tides and weather is available elsewhere for free and often more detailed. I bought this for tidal streams info but this is just an overview and does not contain info on speed of the flow etc but does give a useful indication.

Peter Baker

Very Highly Recommended My favourite general Ap for UK sailing. Very very useful.

J Harvey

Love it Awesome app for the seaman.

Steve Whitfield

Had Boaty for a while and info is realy useful. Just installed on new phone with larger screen and is even better for detailed views exceptional for a free app!

Chris Godfrey

Works really well I'm impressed with this bearing in mind it's a phone app. I like the tide tables and maps linked with Google maps. It's a useful visual prompt when doing your proper passage plan and for checking when at the helm (not down below!). I've been using the app in the Solent and along to Plymouth.

Alan Jennings

Very comprehensive I've waited a few weeks before reviewing as some reviews are mixed. I really like this app. It covers all of UK and Rep of Ireland. Weather, tides, reference info and some navigational functions make it great value for the low cost. It's also worked on my Note 2 without any problems. I'd love to see a map overlay with boating passage.

Colin Stroud

No use when out boating Does not retain data so it can be referred to when out on the boat without a data connection. Often stops working. Tidal stream arrows do not move with the map when panning. Tide port has to be reset every time as it does not automatically load my last selected port. Keeps stopping. Have been sailing around UK south and east coast for last 10 days and has not been useful.

John Bennett

Good app Very useful application. The main improvement i would like to see is to have favourite sites so you don't have to go through the list of regions every time

John Kelly

dissapointed HTC desire C it all worked fine for the first day and then stopped working when asked for weather. now it has stopped downloading tidal info. not much left is there?

Derek Wilkinson

Not working When I try to access Inshore or Shipping forecasts on my Nexus 10, it crashes. I've reported to the developer but there's been no reply.

Jon Welford

Very useful for yachties Excellent app. I use all the time especially the synoptic charts. Developer very helpful and quick to respond.

Martin Warnock

Unimpressed Refuses to update tides and weather.

Alan Furniss

New version 1.16 is perfect! I've used this app since it was first released as version 1.0, mainly for tide information and shipping forecasts/synoptic charts. Now that the tidal stream section has been added it is quite simply the best app available if you spend any time on the water. Boatie turns my new Sony (waterproof) Xperia Z into an indispensable piece of sailing equipment. If I could give it 6 stars I would! Just a comment on the person who unfairly awarded it 1 star because, as he put it "Useless app for anyone who lives anywhere else than England area would be nice to have this on as a word of warning before wasting money don't buy it". Could I point out that the very first paragraph of the description of the product says clearly & succinctly "Boatie is a handy source of information for all who enjoy recreational boating in UK coastal waters". Perhaps he didn't understand that while the "UK" contains the "England Area" he refers to, however therefore by definition, it does not include (amongst others...) USA, New Zealand, Australia, Canada, Polynesia, Antarctica, The Caribbean etc......

Nigel Josling

Forecast Hiccup Downloaded installed and weather initially worked fine but unfortunately Boa tie now keeps stopping on me when I request Inshore or Shipping forecasts. Its weird.

Gareth Roberts

Boatie Useless app for anyone who lives anywhere else than England area would be nice to have this on as a word of warning before wasting money don't buy it

Chris Turner

Chris Turner First rate app. Works well on my GT P1000. Developer very helpful.

A Google User

Superb. Have been using previous version for some time and was very pleased with all features. Now that tidal streams have been added, matching the iPhone version, it is superb. An invaluable app for coastal water users. Like another reviewer I too would give it 6 stars. Many thanks..

Peter Heath

Crashes The tide app crashes continually - renders the whole program as useless as it will not allow me to access any other part of the app without annoying hassles. Yuk! Fix it paleeze .

Mark Swain

Its working again... Back upto five stars. It seems that you need to uninstall any previous versions then reinstall the new version for it to work. Auto upgrades dont work.

Rick Underhill

Rick Underhill Tidal streams frozen. Needs some work.

Derek Gordon

Broken it. Samsung Galaxy S3. New tidal streams does not display any map or reference point just arrows. Freezes and locks up the app. Constantly reports app has stopped working. Great pity as previous version was 5 star. How do I uninstall and get back to previous version. PLEASE FIX.

A Google User

Teabag Really useful app. Would like inclusion of tidal stream info. Ability to rotate screen would be helpful too.

Rafael Moslin

New to boating A beginner friendly app such as this is just what I needed, best of all it looks like it will grow in usefulness as my abilities do.

Paul Woodward

a google user with nexus 7 great app but needs to add tidal streams to match the superb iPhone version. also when will the solent marks be updated to 2013

A Google User

Very useful app Developer was very responsive to requests for improvement. Very happy with the app.

A Google User

Excellent Great content. Quits from time to time when launched. HTC Sensation XE

A Google User

Please add tidal stream data! Great app but desperately needs tidal streams to fill that gap in the android app market!!!

A Google User

Great app. Been using it for 2 years. Very helpful when things go wrong.

A Google User

Great App Thank you for the great app. It's just what I needed :-)

Jasper Dale

JDa Loads of great information especially weather sog and cog but no menu on galaxy s5 so can't add way point and tide

Tom Lee

Normally brilliant but not recently Stopped being able to download weather or tide information over the last few days. Won't work on 4g or WiFi. Have tried restarting a few times to no avail. Use this app alot normally and always been happy with it.

David walpole

No menu contacted app developer they said they would get back to me, no contact as of yet. Uninstalled and reinstalled and no menu again.

Ian French

No menu galaxy tab 4 Useless without menu or settings

Pamela Drew

Couldn't open the menu button on my Samsung so emailed James and this is what he sent back. "On Samsung devices, the menu button is a long press of the bottom left button". All working now, Thanks James for you quick response and now a working Boatie. Pam.

Sal N

No menu button on Galaxy Note 4 How do I get my £5 back? There is no menu button on my device which obviously makes this app totally useless.

Ricky Chalmers

Solent Sailing Focused on Solent Sailors. Weather, tides, waypoints and reference in one neat package.

John David Geary

Boatie Would like to use this app on some of my other android devices as it is so useful. Using my Samsung tab s and LG G3 I cannot change the local ports for tides or select the area in the inshore forecast. I find it very useful for sailing and coastwatch.


Hold apps button Hold app list button for menu button emulation. Uninstalled as UK only

Nick Hiltunen

No menu button Tried every combination of button presses and still no menu button. How do I get my money back??

Peter Bruce

Doesn't work Don't waste money on this app like I did, no response from people made the app and there is no menu so the port can't be altered, my port displayed is Portsmouth but I'm in Cowes?

Ray Lewis

Menu button not working on Samsung s6 Used to be a great little app but since upgrading my phone to an s6 the menu button no longer works so it's become a bit useless. Shame as I used it a lot. Please fix.

Colin Stroud

No menu button There is no menu button so useless. Have emailed developer but no reply.

Andrew Hogg

No menu on newer phones No menu option. Long press no longer works on Samsung as that now controls split screen.


Does not work, do not purchase There is no menu button for selection, have used this app on ios and its great, all functions are good. Just no support for boatie on Android

Jennie Horton

It used to be great.... As the later reviewers have all said, the newer galaxy's do not have the relevant menu button, so no longer able to change port or sea area. This was such a good app, please update with an internal menu.

Dave Thomas

Found local tides. I found menu button no problem. Swipe u up and look for 3 dots.

Richard Tudor

Doesn't work No menu button on Galaxy S7 either, tried bottom left hold down but that didn't work either. Weather charts poor quality, don't fill the screen and are now only available for next 2 days.. wow this went down hill.. ?

Mark Sedgwick

Was great until last update It was great until the last update, where the menu button is no longer in the bottom right corner of screen. So you can't change port etc. Please fix - Samsung Galaxy S6. Thanks.

Thomas Keggen

Samsung s6 edge No menu button which is a huge shame and a waste of money

Ian Deeley

Lacking updates compared to iOS version Disappointed to find it to not be as up to date as the iOS app. Doesnt follow new Android Material Design guidelines and not sure if the solent racing buoys are up to date?

Philip Taylor

Boatie It was OK for a while, then the next couple menu button disappeared and you could not change the areas for weather or tide timings!

Sam Sung

No menu button Useless on Android, no menu button showing on Samsung, until this is fixed don't pay for it
