K-Sim Fast Craft Simulator is designed for highly realistic and immersive training in high-speed navigation, boat handling and tactical operations. It allows for effective and repeatable training and reduces risk to personnel safety and equipment damage.

K-Sim Fast Craft can be delivered in various RIB / RHIB, Interceptor or Fast Patrol Boat configurations, with propulsion systems like; water-jet, surface drive, stern drive and outboards. The simulator is designed to replicate the on-board operator positions, control- and maneuvering systems, with the possibility to integrate real controllers, indicators and displays.


K-Sim Fast Craft utilizes K-Sim’s advanced physics engine and cutting-edge hydrodynamic vessel modelling capabilities to simulate high-speed vessels and make them behave very closely to how they would do in real life. The simulator provides a fully interoperable representation and creates a realistic and accurate simulation of the boat’s behavior, wave interaction, stern wave effects and impact on other vessels/objects. 

This advanced and unique simulator solution can be delivered with generic fast craft hydrodynamic models as well as with KONGSBERG’s custom made models. These models are developed from recorded vessel performance data and validated against real 

The simulator design comprises an advanced motion system scaled to realistically simulate the operating environment and boat-type characteristics at various speed ranges and sea states. The motion platform movement correlates to the propulsion system and hull type characteristics of the real boat.

To provide the trainees with the perception of operating in an actual environment, the simulator is equipped with a low radius, cylindrical visual projection system, designed with a larger vertical field of view to improve the visual experience through the motion envelope. The physical bridge layout is designed to replicate the on-board operator positions, configured specifically to the boat type with the possibility to integrate real controllers, indicators and displays.


The solution can include weapons training capabilities, for multiple weapons types, integrated into the simulator. This creates an extremely realistic training environment to effectively train the boat crew, in not only boat handling and high-speed navigation, but also highly realistic and full-scale tactical scenarios including weapons engagement. Maritime organizations will be provided with the possibility to train all onboard crew functions, in the full range of operational scenarios within their mission portfolio. Instructor System.

The K-Sim Fast Craft includes the same state-of-the-art instructor, monitoring and assessment system as K-Sim Navigation, developed with the user experience firmly in focus. In addition to the realistic environment for students, instructors benefit from an award winning* instructor system designed to facilitate ease of use. It features an intuitive and modern educational tool utilising a modified ECDIS chart as a starting point with drag & drop function for creating exercises. The instructor system also includes automatic recording and an advanced assessment system for ensuring optimal training and feedback standards.

See the CNA news on how Singapore Police Coast Guard train its crew in high-speed navigation, boat handling and tactical operations.


The K-Sim Fast Craft meets the demanding training needs associated with high-speed boat / RIB operations and the complex operating environment in modern naval warfare and law enforcement. The simulator solution allows for effective training in high-risk operations, in a controlled and safe environment. The solution is adaptable to a wide range of user groups that operate high-speed boats: 

  • Special Operations Forces
  •  Coast Guards
  • Navies
  • Search and Rescue Organisations
  • Maritime- and Fast Rescue Craft training providers
  • Marine Police Forces
  • Pilots
  • Customs and Border Patrols
  • Fire Departments
  • Ship builders and manufacturers


STCW Requirements for Training

All K-Sim simulator systems and models within the class A, B and C meets the IMO’s STCW requirements for training. In addition, several K-Sim Engine models are compliant with the IGF Code’s training requirements of crew working on low-flashpoint fuels. 

DNV Certification

All K-Sim simulator systems and models within Class A, B and C are certified by Det Norske Veritas (DNV) according to the current standard DNV-ST-0033 Maritime simulator systems.

Nautical Institute

All K-Sim DP (Dynamic Positioning) simulators are complaint with the Appendix E – NI DP Simulator/Equipment specification issued by Nautical Institute in the Dynamic Positioning Operator Training Scheme Accreditation Standard.
