ShipShape Pro is designed by a team of sailors and motorboat professionals. It is a comprehensive boating app for iPad and our premium boat maintenance app


ShipShape Pro was developed specifically at the request of customers of our other boating apps who had asked for an iPad app to help them manage and maintain their boats. A number of our customers were directly involved in the design and testing process


ShipShape Pro is for use by individuals, boat maintenance professionals, charter companies and boatyards. Its modular design means that all of its features work for any type or size of craft


The App ships with one boat. Additional boat records can be purchased in-App in packs of 1, 5 or 10

iPad 2 and later


  • I don't often write reviews. There are a hundred reasons that I love this app. I recommend it to anyone with a boat.

  • The app may be called ShipShape Pro but I find it really helpful for maintaining just the one boat that the amateur me owns! It has made me into a professional! Great feature that you can assign maintenance tasks to the boatyard and email them the list. I use that quite a lot. Also like the Faults list - which goes over to them too.

  • Our charter fleet has never been better maintained. Everyone on our team knows what needs doing and when it needs to be done. We leave an iPad on board with ShipShape Pro for charterers to use and they know where everything is. One of the best sailing apps I have found.

  • I used to find looking after 14 client boats a bit challenging. This app has made my life a lot easier. Mailing reports to clients straight from the app is something they really appreciate.
