The Client

What the client needed

VESSEL: 40m charter yacht

YEAR: 2007 


The client came to us due to the following concerns:

• High crew churn rate throughout the season requiring induction/training.

• Level of specific yacht training and awareness for crew and the guests. 

• Overall guest safety / low retention level and frustration due to ‘holiday mode’.

• Charter availability negatively affected due to unplanned breakdowns, overruns during maintenance activities and overall yacht management.

The Challenge

What We Did

The V360 Marine team produced a single solution delivered through a web-based, photo-realistic 3D model of the yacht, recreating the engineering systems and assets so that the model was a detailed digital representation of the yacht. 

From this we developed three specific functions.

    Sorry, no posts matched your criteria.
Function 1

Crew induction and training simulator

An interactive animation was created using the model which guides the new recruit through the yacht and a number of set challenges, such as locating and effectively starting the emergency generator. We also added in the provision to introduce random hazards and risks such as a blocked fire exit or alarm to provide a more complete and realistic training simulator. 

As a server-based solution this could be done before the crew member arrives on-board. It integrates into a training module where profiles can be created for individual crew to ensure compliance and effective training profiles based on strengths and weaknesses.

Function 2

Guest safety induction platform 

An additional interactive animation was developed similar to the crew induction and training simulator which could be used by future guests to use online prior to arrival at the yacht. It included all the normal safety information such as location of safety equipment, emergency responses and alarms but also specific information such as evacuation procedures from a specific cabin. 

Function 3

Maintenance function

As the model is created ‘as-built’, every system and asset is located exactly where it is on the yacht. The application allows the engineer to simulate the fault and troubleshoot it before work starts. The fault can be identified, assessed and fixed quickly and the application will provide all the required data for the fault diagnostic, where to locate the problem, detailed animation of how to access the area, how to fix the problem and also provide the crew with the feedback so future issues can be avoided. This is all done within the model so is visually accurate.
