Track Zen Dog! She has an AIS Transponder – a device that transmits her name, position and speed at all times. You can find out where she is right now and track her via the excellent Marine Traffic website

Try your hand at driving a boat like Zen Dog. The Boat Docker web based simulator lets you practice maneuvering into tight marina berths. Make sure you configure it as shown and you’ll have a perfect Zen Dog simulator!

Create your own Zen Dog If you think Zen Dog is a bit white and boring, download this and colour it in yourself (unless you are staying on Zen Dog in which case keep those messy coloured pens/pencils/crayons away from our lovely cream upholstery, kids!) Send us your finished picture and we’ll put it on the Zen Dog Boat Instagram account!
