NAUTIS Home contains standardized content for individual sailing, training and assessment. We offer a realistic, immersive simulation experience made possible through the expertise built from our professional NAUTIS software.

Are you ready to set sail?

NAUTIS Home is based on our professional NAUTIS software. This results in an immersive, 3D simulation experience with realistic hydrodynamics and vessel behavior. You can train your skills and sail in highly realistic settings.

Explore the oceans in Free-roam mode and select your own vessel, environment, and weather conditions. Do you want to enjoy a sunny day in Hong Kong or face a storm off the coast of New York? Whatever floats your boat! Would you rather train your nautical skills? Choose Training mode and select a course from our library to practice challenging situations.

Through scenarios you can experience different aspects of nautical training. Learn to make a sharp turn, or train to manoeuvre in high traffic waters and narrow straits. Work your way up from beginner-level manoeuvring to more advanced. New courseware will be added continuously in the Early Access phase, such as anchoring and mooring coming soon!

The training scenarios start with a scenario briefing and pre-defined route overview. Can you complete all the objectives as a helmsman? Find out in the assessment followed upon completion of the scenario. Track your progress to continue improving your maritime skills.

The Early Access release of NAUTIS Home will contain 10 vessels (Tugboat, Inland, Coaster, Container, Ferry, Cruise, Yacht and more) and 8 environments (Rotterdam, Hong Kong, New York and more). But there is more news! NAUTIS Home will be under continuous development to keep adding more content.

Our goal is to make the NAUTIS Home interface as user-friendly as possible. You only need one screen to sail for the Outside view, Chart, Radar, Conning and On-screen controls. If you have an extra monitor, panels such as Chart or Radar can be moved to that screen to create a larger view and more space. Through the Action bar, pop-up panels can be accessed. Good news, we are working on supporting a USB controller. Stay tuned!
