3dHUB Digital Twin 

Unlock the potential of a 3D
in-depth manual of your vessel

All your vessel's data viewed through a virtual single window

3D photographs place equipment in its correct location, viewed in an AI walkthrough of your vessel

Links effectively create an Internet of Things (IoT) within Hub-Ware's range of solutions or your own yacht management software

Your Digital Twin is most effective online, but it can work offline when wifi / mobile data isn't available and sync as required 

The security of your Digital Twin's is critical, and can only be viewed by users with specific permission

Sharing your Digital Twin with the shipyard offers the ultimate in technical support 

How we set up your Digital Twin...

01

We photograph the vessel with a highly specialised 3D camera

02

Our AI software stitches those photos together to create an interactive 3D model 

03

We tag every deck, room and key piece of equipment, linking each to an element in a central database (certificate, form, owner's manual, info)

How we tag your digital twin

Revolutionise the way your shipyard works

Help your shipyard to systematically deliver documentation against each piece of equipment, tagged in a virtual walkthrough of your vessel. Curate vital data that will be used by the crew to run the boat and its yacht management software. A 3dHUB Digital Twin provides intimate knowledge of your vessel, guaranteeing that the crew can work more efficiently with maintenance, safety procedures, and inventory keeping, thereby reducing running costs and avoiding unnecessary warranty work.

How 3dHUB Digital Twins will reshape your new build yard

Store each project's Digital Twin as the ultimate record for future warranty work reference. Upon completion of the project, both the client and shipyard can receive a Digital Twin. For the first time ever, the shipyard can review each project in intimate detail, so can more effectively organise any warranty work with confidence months after its launch.   

A new and improved general assembly of your project. A Digital Twin easily locates – which is critical with hidden equipment – throughout the vessel, acting as an immersive and interactive experience with information tied to each deck, room and piece of equipment. Rather than referring to the General Assembly and P&ID drawings, which could be outdated due to last minute changes, the shipyard can work intuitively with up-to-date information viewed using a 3-dimensional photographic interface. 

Adheres to the Single Window IMO protocol. Single Window is an environment in which all information is exchanged via one single point of entry, which in this case can be viewed in the immersive 3-dimensional environment of a Digital Twin. Navigate your project's Digital Twin with confidence that all information attached to equipment, drawings and systems are sourced from a Single Window-oriented database. 

Impress your clients

Delivering a boat with an integrated Digital Twin communicates and attention to quality and service by conveying transparency, professionalism, and extra clarity regarding the details of the vessel. Clients demand assurance of quality and trust – paramount in the competitive ship building market in enhancing reputation – and what better way to instil trust than providing the owner with a comprehensive digital record of the finished build before they take delivery.

Adding extra long term value to vessel. The Digital Twin is a powerful marketing tool, and in the event that the customer decides to sell the yacht, their vessel has already been delivered with a 3D tour of each deck and room, with links to all equipment information and its maintenance history.

Deliver your boat better than a car manufacturer delivers their car: more than just an owner's manual and service handbook, this adds much of the functionality of a the full workshop manual to provide an ultimate technical document that breaks down the location of all systems and equipment with easy access to all required info.

A picture is worth a thousand words. A 3-dimensional walkthrough is worth three thousand more, 3dHUB's Digital Twin tackling the difficulty of complex, multi-layered vessels, using a 3-dimensional visual solution to the client and crew.

How 3dHUB Digital Twins improve yacht  management software


Use the vessel's digital twin as a navigation tool for your yacht management software platform. 3dHUB is an immersive user experience that can link its intuitive navigation to decks and equipment, with links directly into your platform.

Navigating a Digital Twin to access the features of your yacht management software vastly improves your customers' user experience, avoiding human error and user dissatisfaction

  • Engineers can navigate to their 3-Dimensional engine room, and from there directly access any equipment documentation, certificate or maintenance history that is stored within your yacht management software platform
  • The crew can navigate to a room and have direct access to a safety form that needs to be filled before performing hazardous work
  • The crew can navigate to a storeroom shelf in the digital twin and directly update stock levels

Revolutionising crew familiarisation and training. With access to its 3dHUB Digital Twin, authorised users have access to a complete breakdown of the vessel and all of its hidden corners at their fingertips. Vessels are known to experience high crew turnover, which is often attributed to their  dissatisfaction with the lack of organisation of the boat. A Digital Twin in conjunction with your yacht management software platform will help streamline that organisation and reduce new crew member training on the workings of the vessel and its yacht management software via a more straightforward and visual approach.


A picture is worth a thousand words. A 3-dimensional walkthrough is worth three thousand more, 3dHUB's Digital Twin tackling the difficulty of documenting complex and layered vessels by offering a clear 3-dimensional visual approach to the crew.

There has never been a better way to plan and document a refit project than a 3-dimensional before and after walkthrough of the vessel. Capturing a Digital Twin of the starting position not only helps to plan and document the work that is to be done, but offers a level of unambiguous transparency in the industry. And used in conjunction a second Digital Twin on completion helps to track changes and repairs made during refit. Bolster your image and use your digital twin as a powerful tracking tool!

Use your Digital Twins to track issues and changes. Geo-locate issues on the initial Digital Twin for the whole team to track, tagged to equipment captured in the 3D model and saved in a Single Window database running in the background. 3D issue tracking is a revolutionary tool for keeping your refit yard on top of changes

Better gauge the scope of your refit, confirmed using a Digital Twin. Refits can often be hard to gauge, leading to financial disputes with an absent client, but a Digital Twin increases the client's familiarity, improving communication and rapport with the owner’s team and reducing the risk of overrunning the budget upon completion.

How 3dHUB Digital Twins will transform the way you handle your refits

An influential tool for enhancing the refit yard’s image relating to quality and innovation. When operating in a niche sector, attention to detail, transparency and effective adoption of technology inspire greater consumer trust and satisfaction. 3dHUB achieves exactly that, building cutting-edge technology, efficiency and an easily communicated, agreed plan using Digital Twins. 

Streamline your data efficiency with adherence to the Single Window protocol coined by the IMO. Single Window is an environment in which all information is exchanged via one single point of entry, which in this case can be viewed in the immersive 3-dimensional environment of a Digital Twin. Navigate your project's Digital Twin with confidence that all information attached to equipment, drawings and systems are sourced from a Single Window-oriented database. 

Impress your clients. Clients demand assurance of quality and trust which are paramount in competing in the refit market and enhancing reputation.  What better way to instil trust than granting the owner digital access to the build's digital twin without needing to travel to the shipyard.
