Nordic Star 32′ Cruiser

This 32′ motor yacht was designed by Studio Delta, for a foreign client.

He approached us for the evaluation of the design, and where possible to recommend improvements.

We investigated the hull form, the propeller tunnel, skeg, rudders and the propulsion system.

  • improved the top speed through a reduction in resistance;
  • improved seakeeping behaviour;
  • reduced the risk of propeller cavitation.


In addition, we carried out CFD calculations including free-surface effects to assess and evaluate the performance of the winglets.
