Fugawi Marine 5 Download Version

As of August 22nd, 2017 we have ceased sales of Fugawi Marine 5 software. Due to steadily declining Windows PC software sales combined with evolving chart formats and hardware, the decision has been made to discontinue Fugawi Marine 5 software.  We would like to thank all of our Fugawi Software customers over the years for their support.

Fugawi Marine 5 leads the way for a new generation of navigation software with an intuitive feel, modern design and support for GPS, AIS, Weather and Engine instruments.
