Tymaya Micrometer Sextant

Model MS 833, new condition.

Tymaya Micrometer Sextant

He is correct, you have to have an asking price.
However Iíd Google what a Tamaya goes for before I came up with an asking price, itís my belief that itís one of the better Sextants.

Re: Tymaya Micrometer Sextant

For anyone who is interested the Tamaya web site says:


The MS-833 is the more economical type but a full-size sextant.
It has many of the advanced features that a high-quality sextant has.
Built to meet tough standards and engineered for quality, the MS-833 professional marine sextant is the best-selling sextant offered by Tamaya.


Ebay prices are all other the place.

Yes, Iím located in northern Va. I think a fair price would be 275.
In 1980 it was a one month paycheck and a Loran was two months.
The Trimbel gps just hit the scene and was only 9k.

Re: Tymaya Micrometer Sextant

Does the sextant serial number match the certification?
An important point supporting your price.

Re: Tymaya Micrometer Sextant

Today I went to Bluewater in Ft Lauderdale FL in search of a book, "Sextant for Dummies."
Apparently there has not been a book by that title. LOL
If you need a chart and cannot find it locally, Bluewater will have it and will update it too.

They have many books on the use of the sextant.
They also have the work sheets too.

I guess I will have to hunt down that book. I do qualify for the "complete idiot" part
