Presented is a brand new Tamaya NC 2 Astro Navigation calculator which was
introduced in the United States by Nautech Maritime Corporation, the direct importer, in 1976. It was sold by Nautech
Maritime Corporation to an aspiring boat builder for the 42 foot sailboat he was building in 1977. In 2004, the
boat was still not finished so he sold the hull and the rest if the gear that was to be installed in it. Recently his son,
while going through the estate came across it unused in his closet where it had been for the last 35 years. Of interest
to collectors is that it has all the original documentation, instructions and worksheets that were prepared by Nautech and
the original Tamaya instruction booklet are included and are in never used condition.
We have tested all its functions and it is operating as it was designed to do, and fully functional.
At the time of its introduction, it was the only instrument that was internally programmed,
i.e. “hard wired“, to solve all major navigation solutions. Other than the nautical almanac, no other tables
or books are required. In 1978, it was followed by the Tamaya NC 77 which had a built in Nautical Almanac, and in 1984
by the NC 88 which added a tape print out. The NC 99 was the last of this line of celestial navigation computers developed
by Tamaya, all of which have been discontinued.
