navigateur de plaisance à la table à carte

I am translating a text about users of geopositioning. There is an example of a pilot and then this:

navigateur de plaisance à la table à carte de son voilier (si tant est que la table à carte subsiste dans les futurs carrés des voiliers)

So someone using a map on his boat? 'navigateur de plaisance' I really do not understand.

I also can't work out table à carte.

Many thanks for your help!

    Hi chocolate-teapot

    Your sentence sounds like a caption for a picture. "Table à carte" is "chart table" i.e. the table where you examine charts.

    "yachstman at the chart table of his yacht (assuming chart tables still exist in the wardrooms of future yachts.)

    Thanks.

    As for navigateur, I found a website with an explanation of navigation de plaisance and it seems to be people sailing for fun...so an amateur sailor?
