Does OpenCPN support S-63 formats?

I am running my OpenCPN software and I am looking for Vector charts or Raster Charts for the Adriatic Sea, especially focussing on the Croatian side from the Istrian Peninsula to Dubrovnik.
I have found several offers in S-63 format but I am unsure if the OpenCPN supports this format.
Does anyone have an info on that and/or another ink to vector or raster charts from this area.
Any info is much appreciated.
Wish all of you safe trips and good winds.

The short answer is: No
More here: Chart Formats | Official OpenCPN Homepage
and the why? is answered here: S-63 Confusion

If you're on windows, check out what the German nv-charts have to offer in the Med. Their charts works on O with a plugin.

Hi Cagney,
thanks a lot for your reply.
I am on a Mac so I am a bit more limited than my Windows colleagues.
Do you happen to have a brilliant idea for a Mac user? I am on Google since 2 days but don´t get very much appealing data on that.
Thanks and have a good day.

I think that Digital nautical charts for Mediterranean Sailing. Adriatic Sea. Italy, Croatia, Slovenia is another alternative.

They sell charts in different formats. The BSB 2.0 format should work fine with O on Mac.
