Ship Simulator is a vehicle simulation computer game which simulates maneuvering various ships in different environments, although without the effects of wind and current. It was developed by Dutch company VSTEP and released by the Former Company Lighthouse Interactive, which closed down in 2009.

The first version of Ship Simulator was released in 2006 and was titled Ship Simulator 2006. The user can steer various ships, amongst others a Rotterdam water taxi, a container ship and even the Titanic, in various weather conditions and in 3 real life harbours, which are Rotterdam, Hamburg and Phi Phi Islands in Thailand. A game element is added to the simulation by means of 40 "missions" which have to be completed as fast or as accurately as possible. Users can also design their own missions, and share with others.
