Anchor VR, a 3D and virtual reality company that helps superyacht clients to visualize and develop their yachts, now includes crew training in its 3D, VR (virtual reality) and AR (augmented reality) services. The company recently joined the Superyacht Training Group, an international syndicate that brings together global providers of onboard crew training and consultancy services.
