MarineVerse
brings sailing to Virtual Reality.

We want to enable more people to sail. We are doing it by providing sailing education and entertainment using VR technology.

We are building VR sailing applications for HTC Vive, GearVR and Google Cardboard. Our flagship product is VR Regatta. We also released more than 6 prototypes.

Education

Learn cheaper and quicker. VR enables us to provide sailing training and education at your home. It's fun and engaging tool to reinforce what you are already learning on the water.

As a newbie, you can go at your own pace, focusing on a given subject for as long as necessary. On top of that, your instructor will be able to join you in the virtual world, if you need anything specific explained.

Advanced sailor? We can connect you with experts from around the world while VR offers unique learning environment. Fancy practicing use of rescue raft or distress flare? In VR, you can do that!

Entertainment

Vrreggatascreen

Make a good use of your VR hardware and have some fun.

Never sailed before? You will discover sailing while having a blast in VR. Go on adventures, compete with your friends and on the weekend, maybe visit your local sailing club to test your newly acquired skills.

Landlocked sailor? Sailing season is over? No sailing weather? In MarineVerse conditions are always right. Strap in your virtual reality headset and enjoy some relaxing sailing.

Our vision

When everyone is using virtual reality on a daily basis, we want MarineVerse to be a safe harbour, where you can meet like-minded people, sail together, socialize and learn, growing as a sailor. Your best adventures are yet to happen :-)
