Product Features: 


The new Open-Bridge-System makes handling on deck much easier. In addition, the binoculars can be easily grabbed and held with one hand to always ensure a safe navigation.


Once set, the STEINER Auto-Focus always delivers crystal-clear images in 3D brilliance from 20m to infinity - without refocusing. The 7x magnification ensures blur-free images to identify tons, beacons and bridge numbers, even in rough weather conditions (sea).

Special rubber coating texture

The new wave-like rubber coating texture significantly improves the grip on the binoculars and the handling comfort. In addition, the texture has special water-repellent properties that guarantee non-slip and safe handling even in rough sea.

Wider Field of View

The already impressive field of view of the Navigator Pro Series has been further improved. This gives you an even more breathtaking overview when looking through the binoculars. This extended field of view makes it easier to navigate safely when entering a harbor or in similar narrow environments such as when passing a bridge.

Legendary ruggedness

Due to durable Makrolon housing made of polycarbonate that withstands impacts up to 11G, floating prism bearings for shock absorption, water pressure proofness up to 5m, nitrogen pressure filling against fogging inside, temperature range from -20°C to +70°C.

Advanced accessories

We developed for you a new universal attachment system for the neoprene harness. This can be exchanged easily and intuitively between future Steiner products. In addition, a new bag is included to ensure that your binoculars are always optimally protected even when not in use. The usual accessories, such as rain caps and lens caps, are of course still included.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeds all expectations!! I have owned my Navigators for a few years now and I can't express my complete satisfaction with the performance of the Binoculars. I keep them with me on my flybridge and they have never disappointed. Clear, clean, sharp views always, the in view compass is also nice as an additional point of reference. I highly recommend these or any model in the Steiner line.They are worth every penny!!

Hi, I just bought a Navigator 7x50C and i can't find the serial number. Where it is? Thank you

Asked by: Aquada
The serial number should be located on the center hinge pin or under the main hinge depending on the year of manufacture.
