Splash Maritime Training Australian sceneries and exercises for Motorboat Simulator

Stentec’s Motorboat Simulator 1.2 is available from Stentec.com . This very affordable software from Stentec (under $70 au) matches many of the features of professional marine simulators costing tens of thousands of dollars, including selectable vessels, time, weather, seastate, currrent, engineering and navigational instruments on twelve coastal sceneries from around the world. 

The sceneries give an Australian context to this very affordable Motorboat Simulator simulator with its default World wide sceneries.

SMT developed the Australian Scenery Package (not a Stentec product) and SAR exercises for Volunteer Marine Rescue Crew training, but they are equally useful for realistic navigational practice by trainees and challenge testing by trainers.





The simulator's navigational instruments  correspond to Australian charts so though not suitable for practical navigation they may be used for practice plotting, passage planning and pilotage.




Time of day, weather, sea state, current, leeway and vessel loading are all user defined, enabling realistic challenge testing scenarios to be assess students competency level.




Coastal features can be identified and their positions laid off.
