Fast Displacement XL®
New FDHF Hull Concepts
Van Oossanen has been working on new developments within the FDHF concept. The general aim has been to examine alternative volume-length ratios and finding new unique selling points. The results are 3 new FDHF-based hull forms.
One of them is the patented Fast Displacement XL®; this new interpretation of the FDHF is combing max length within the 300 and 500GT categories, ensuring a high standard of comford and stability onboard.
Fast Displacement XL®: maximum length for GT, optimal comfort
- Maximum length within the GT categories
- Best performance and good comfort
- Open platform for any design
- Patented since 2016
This hull concept aims to realize the maximum length within the FDHF concept, ensuring a stable and comfortable yacht, also at lower speeds. So maximum speeds results are reached by a hull that still sails comfortable through the water. In 2016 our Fast Displacement XL® was successfully patented.
Examples of concepts that we developed with designers:
Cor D. Rover design 61 m/ 200 ft length for <500 GT
Federico Fiorentino design 48 m/ 156 ft length for <300GT
