Latest interactive powerboat and race car simulators await IAAPA Attractions Expo guests
Cruden, the professional motion simulator company, will bring simulators for motorsport and powerboat racing to the IAAPA Attractions Expo 2015 (November 17-21 2015; Orlando, Florida; booth 1047).
Launched at the Expo last year, Cruden’s Powerboat 5CTR is a realistic, interactive drive and ride experience for up to five people that uses a real powerboat and delivers accurate motion derived from actual boat and water models. For 2015, the boat experience has been enhanced to include a speedboat nose or bow, for added visual impact.
With the Powerboat 5CTR, Cruden has applied the same, detailed modeling approach to wave and boat dynamics and professional image generation as the industry has come to expect from its race car simulators. It has worked with the Dutch military on its fast interceptor vessels and security boats as well as Florida powerboat specialists and drivers to get the motion just right.
With two of the crew at the front controling the helm, throttle, trim and navigation, and three participating in the action from the back seats, guests are fully immersed via realistic motion (roll, pitch and heave) and interaction with ocean swell, waves and the wake from other boats. The result is a thrilling, high speed group experience of around three to five minutes, which allows two or more boats to race against each other.
Powerboat 5CTR starts at €87,500 for one simulator and €165,000 for two in the recommended dual set-up.
Cruden is the world’s leading designer and manufacturer of professional, interactive, motion-based racing simulators. The company develops the most high tech, realistic and accurate professional equipment for the top levels of international motorsport, including Formula 1, as well as vehicle manufacturers and their suppliers.

Cruden’s heritage is in the development of professional simulators for the aerospace, marine and automotive industries. Originating from Fokker Aircraft Company, the company was FCS Racing Simulation before becoming Cruden in 2006. www.cruden.com
