This completely redesigned 3D Version of the famous App "Dock Your Boat" offers even greater enjoyment of training because of its advanced user-friendly functions and beautiful artwork. The developers are passionate skippers by themselves and bring their sailing experience into the game.

The basic concept behind Dock your Boat 3D is the same as for the first 2D Version: The boat and harbour-simulator for docking and undocking under engine helps the skipper to improve her/his skills in safe manoeuvring of yachts in different environments. It also allows to handle lines, fenders and anchor. The wind strength can be set individually depending upon desired degree of difficulty.

If you want to play all scenes you will have to purchase a subscription. You will get access to all existing and future scenes then.
From now on you can also design your own scenes and share with your friends or students.

We offer several subscription models ranging from 1 week to 1 year.

The price is shown inside the app since it slightly varies for different countries. Payment will be charged to your Apple ID account at the confirmation of purchase. The subscription automatically renews unless it is canceled at least 24 hours before the end of the current period. Your account will be charged for renewal within 24 hours prior to the end of the current period. You can manage and cancel your subscriptions by going to your App Store account settings after purchase.

Should also work on older devices back to 2015!

Make sure the app can access the internet on the first run! It should download scenes and other configurations that might be specific for your device. After that network is not needed anymore. However you will not get any configuration updates or new scenes then!
You might have to tap the "Factory reset" button on the start screen, if you encounter problems.

Very good game

I’ve been playing for awhile and I’d say it’s pretty realistic I know it’d be a lot of work but is there any way y’all could add a bigger vessel? I work on a tug boat and I’m close to moving into an operator’s position and a simulator like this could help me out I just wish the vessels were bigger and slower so you really had to take the time to figure out what needed to be done to land correctly as opposed to being able to save yourself quickly with throttle or steering.

Thank you for the feedback. Most users are charter clients and so are we. 😁 I do not have experience in operating bigger boats. But, if you are interested to help with your expertise and be part of our testing team, feel free to contact us with the contact form inside the app or

Great game, but...

I love the app and have been playing it for a couple of years now. Super realistic and physics are amazing. I mostly play it while on monotonous conference calls. The subscription based fee irked me initially but now $2 increase? Nope, I'll save my $10 on a freebie. Thanks! ✌️

You know, it is very hard to keep the app updated to the latest technology. I have to waste a lot of time with setbacks every time Unity is bringing a new version of the game engine and then testing and deploying on 4 platforms which takes literally days. But I want to bring more content as well. It´s actually a full time job. I did not explicitly raise the prices. Apple is using the tiers for each country and the retail price also depends on the local taxes.
Think about how much parking a car costs for 2 hours these days. 10$ support the development of the project and get´s you going for 365 days.
Kind regards,

*dock your boat 3d*

Great game fun and realistic. Is there anyway we can get more center counsel boats with like twin motors that would do at least 50mph. And also was wondering if we can get like rain and thunderstorm options also, and also I noticed there is a fuel gauge on the dash it would be cool to get like a option where we can fuel up the boat at like a marina or something. Thanks, sincerely, Brennan.

Thank you for the nice feedback. All those things are on the list. Next up will be a scene editor and sharing of those with friends.
