Some people have reported that the links are not working on: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/KAP-charts_from_OpenSeaMap
However on the same page is a link to the download directory on the server:
ftp://ftp5.gwdg.de/pub/misc/openstreetmap/openseamap/charts/kap/
This link works. It does not have all the same chart collections as on the wiki page - some are missing and there are some extra. The files ending in .7z downloaded and extracted fine using winzip.
