Marine Chart Services was established in 1986 as a ship safety consultancy, by Mike Clarke a former British Merchant Navy Officer and Captain of a luxury private yacht owned by a UK millionaire. Marine Chart Services quickly evolved as a navigation safety service and was soon looking after several hundred ships. In 1994 Mike became recognised as an international expert in navigation safety and he began teaching this in Maritime Academies around the World, including the Philippines, Ukraine, South Korea, USA, Europe and many other countries. By 2017 the business had grown significantly, and the range of services had evolved into selling used and vintage navigation charts via the company website and eBay. Consequently Mike chose to sell off the safety business to concentrate on used and vintage chart sales. He was also undergoing a change of gender to Michelle. In 2018 she acquired around 4,000 vintage and antique charts and her knowledge of the vintage chart market spurred her on to concentrate on this seemingly unique sales avenue. Now, in 2020, Michelle sells on various e-commerce sites and is continually looking for more exposure. She is also looking to acquire further stocks.
