On this page we want to give a little overview on our works and what we offer.
Perhaps you did already come up with software for sailors and motorboaters which seems very promising at first sight, but by using it you have a feeling that the devlopers have never been on a trip with a yacht. We had this feeling quite often while testing new software.
This is the reason why we decided to develop software by sailors for sailors and motorboaters. A strong team of experienced developers and designers—all with high practical relevance—is the basis of 2K Yachting.
At Logbook Suite and Apps you can discover our selection of user-friendly software for sailors and motorboaters.
The popular software package Logbook Suite(for Mac, Windows and iPad) provides additionally to the digital logbook Logbook a selection of useful tools for sailors and motorboaters, called Add-ons.
And if Logbook is too extensive for you, the iPhone app Logbook Lite offers a simplified logbook for the small trip.
The apps Ship's Bell (for iPhone), WorldEnsigns (for iPad and iPhone), SignalFlags Tool (for smartphones and tablets with iOS and Android), BoardCash (for iPhone and iPad), and RegattaPlanner (for iPhone, iPad and PC) complete our range of software.
Experience the fascinating beauty of seascapes, captured and composed by the Düsseldorf-based photographer Helmut Kraus, DGPh. He photographs his remarkable works during sailing trips on the North Sea, Baltic Sea, the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea.
