Abstract
Topic of the final paper is Navigation instruments and equipment. The paper generally discusses the mode of individual instruments and equipment aboard the ship, how this equipment works, their advantages and shortcomings and how a seafarer can use them. It also describes the impact that development of maritime industries has had on the equipment throught the history. Instruments and equipment have developed higher standards of safety and made navigation more comfortable and safer. In spite of the development of instruments and equipment, even today mariners are advised to rely more on their vision and to check the accuracy with the old, non electronic instruments. The reason for it is the fact that nowadays technology has became more complicated and difficult to use, and the safety always comes first.

Tema završnog rada su Navigacijski instrumenti i oprema. U radu se govori općenito o načinu rada pojedinih instrumenata i opreme koja se nalazi na brodu, kako ta oprema funkcionira, koje su prednosti, koje su mane te kako se pomorac može služiti njima. Također, opisan je utjecaj sazrijevanja pomorstva kao gospodarske grane na razvitak opreme kroz povijest. Oprema i instrumenti su razvili više standarde sigurnosti te učinili plovidbu ugodnijom i sigurnijom. Usprkos razvitku instrumenata i opreme, pomorci se i danas savjetuju da se oslanjaju više na svoj vid te provjeravaju točnost na starim, ne-elektroničkim instrumentima. Razlog tomu je što tehnologija s vremenom postaje sve kompliciranija i teža za uporabu, te je sigurnost na prvom mjestu.
