You set sail as others return to dry land. Wind force 12. Breakers beat on the bow deck, spray blows across the bridge. On the high seas: face the sheer force of the elements! And you’re steering them – the most powerful rescue vessels of the Maritime Search and Rescue Service in search of castaways. As a sea rescuer, you put your life on the line – to save the lives of others!

Extinguish fires, salvage damaged ships, direct search and rescue operations, stay in constant radio contact with the Maritime Rescue Co-ordination Center and save lives in 20 different missions. Together with your crew, you’ll become acquainted with the hard day-to-day life of a sea rescuer and make the high seas a little bit safer.

So, choose your vessel and your location on the North or Baltic Sea, switch on your radio and get ready!


  • Rescuing: Steer the salvage cruisers HERMANN MARWEDE and HARRO KOEBKE across the stormy seas. Deploy boats to rescue people in distress at sea!
  • Engaging: Take on the role of the foreman (captain) of the rescue cruiser, and move around the ships freely in first-person perspective! View your ship from numerous camera angles, from inside and out!
  • Absorbing: Featuring up to 30 main and supporting characters, elaborately dubbed and with fascinating background stories. Get to know your crew and radio in regularly to the Maritime Rescue Co-ordination Center.
  • Wide-ranging: Two scenarios (North Sea and Baltic Sea) provide a wide range of missions.
  • Salvaging: Salvage ships! Pump water out of shipwrecks! Extinguish fires on the open seas! Rescue people in distress at sea! The game features the entire spectrum of sea rescue missions.
  • Changing: Experience realistic water, waves and weather that react in real time to the operation, time of day, and the ships and their movements. Sail in bright sunshine or the most raging storms, crystal clear twilight or dense morning fog!
  • Challenging: Take note of tide conditions, use the nautical chart to navigate and deal with the many problems of the On-Scene Coordinator! Steer the ship using either simplified or realistic controls!
  • Collaborating: Produced by simulation and game experts kindly supported by the German Maritime Search and Rescue Service (DGzRS)
  • Connected: A product penned by simulation and games experts with the support of the German Maritime Search and Rescue Service. Includes dev diary. Every copy sold supports the work of the Search and Rescue Service.

Installed it twice. Doesn’t do anything after the first water screen. I am using a new macbook pro which meets all the requirements.

But there are still lots of things to explore. How to leave the view in the first person for example. Every time I have to leave the game.

The Game is worth its Money the Graphics are very good, but some Missions are very heavy or face power. The Story is really Good and realistic.

Game very well, quite difficult to take control of the small rescue boat, but quite realistic. A view inside the boat would be welcome.

Thus, when I start the game, the menu comes so far up, that only QUIT is seen a little bit! Anyone else having problems? Incredibly annoying to post 176KR on a game that does not work.....

For the price it has, it's pretty well done. The graphics and the more than dignified effects. It Is much more limited than other more complete (and more expensive) simulators but very correct. Recommended.

Unfortunately, on my 15 ' MBP Retina with 2.2 GHz i7, 16 GB RAM and Intel Iris Pro 1536 MB, the Game crashes frequently. The Gameplay I personally find very good, challenging Tasks and entertaining Action. Because of the many Crashes but only 3 *

The Game has a very good Graphics and runs very well on my Mac Book Pro. It is varied and the Ships are very realistically represented. The driving Behaviour of the Ship Could be improved a little, but actually succeeded very well. Conclusion: The Game is worth €24.99 And is highly recommended.
