Boat/Ship Sound Clips

We reserve the right to add, change or remove sound clips at any time. We do not make available complete .sfx7 sound sets for download for model boats as we have found that every customer wants a different mix of sounds for their particular boat. Therefore there are not "standard" sound sets like there are for aircraft, helicopters and tanks.

In the table below, the duration is the length of the sound clip when played once. By default, all sounds clips will loop indefinitely whilst triggered. The "Full Sound Set" designation for engine sounds means it includes engine startup, various steps of increasing engine speed and engine shutdown sound, usually a fade out.

If you want to hear a sound clip, please send us an email at contactus@modelsoundsinc.com.

When requesting sound clip samples, please send us a polite and courteous email with please, thank you, regards etc. and include your first and last names, how you heard of us and your location. We will ignore any requests that do not do this.
