Training on the scale models provides experience that could never be gained on real ships for the simple reason that neither ship-owners nor local authorities would allow such risks to be taken.

Scale models allow the shiphandler to make mistakes.

Scale models allow experimentation on ship behaviour to explore unknown fields beyond the limits of safety.

Periodic training on scale models will maintain your shiphandling skills at the highest level and periodic evaluations will show it.

Shiphandling course (5 days)


This course was designed for captains and officers who have never been on manned models before.
It includes shiphandling teaching and training.

Each day of the week is devoted to a particular subject:


  • study of turning in deep and shallow water,

  • study of the role of the pivot point in ship manoeuvres,

  • berthing with or without current,

  • mooring at an SPM / FPSO with waves and current,

  • manoeuvring with anchors (dredging and mooring),

  • meeting and overtaking in a canal.
