Dock your Boat
By sfinx-it GmbH
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
This boat- and harbour-simulator for docking and undocking under engine serves as a realistic trainer for skippers. The idea and the creation comes from an enthusiastic sailor.
The simulator helps to improve your skills in safe manoeuvring of sailing yachts in different environments such as in narrow spaces in ports and marinas, using the prop walk as well as the effects of crosswind and current. It also allows to handle lines and fenders.
Besides the playful character of this simulator game the learning effect is creating the most value added for users. A range of different scenarios with various levels of difficulties are available for selection.
Uncomplicated visual onscreen help with short text guidances passes on the basic principles to get a feel for the handling methods. Optionaly the Pro-Version offers wind and current to be modified. For advanced users we provide a scene-editor via in-app-pruchase.

Many options,great simulator
This little simulator allows for so many variables that you can "play" the same scene numerous times. Wind speed and wind direction and the same for current are adjustable;the combinations are almost endless. As well as the scenes. While it might seem very straightforward to guide the sailboat down a narrow curving fairway, add a good crosswind and swift current it becomes very interesting. The sailboat does respond to pro walk and a burst of forward. No water flowing across the rudder in reverse-no steerage. Very well done and well worth the price!
The boats actually respond to the controls just like a real boat, and the situations are very well thought out. I'm not much of a gamer, I prefer sailing, but this is a great learning/teaching tool, even for expert sailors.
