Helpful visual tool for accurate surveying and efficient vessel maintenance
Virtual Vessel creates photo realistic virtual tours of vessels.
The Virtual Vessels are shot and build by hand and therefore offer high precision and a lot of custom options. Climbing funnels, go below and behind machines, capture every technical detail, shoot inside junction boxes and switchboards, Almost everything is possible. Depending on the needs the density of the Virtual Vessel can be increased or decreased so when needed every frame of a vessel can become remotely accessible.
All the tours build can be hosted on our servers or delivered to the client so they can host the Virtual Vessel on their own secured intranet.
Remote inspections or visits to check on details. Add images to work orders. Improve repair pre-production and preparation. Show actual situations during training and on boarding. The list goes on and on.
Get better quotes
Add photographic visuals to your quotation requests to highly improve the quality of quotes. Without surprises afterwards for client and contracter.

A personal interest grew into a business. Martijn Baudoin started creating 360 images in 2011 and the inner motivation brought him over 400 million views on Google Maps, he won the Gold Award “Google Contributors” and travelled 5 continents to shoot 360 content for online commercials.
