Gran Displacement Hull (+Hull Vane)
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, offering each unique new features: 30-40% more volume, maximum length with optimal comfort and highest efficiency combined with maximized exterior space. These concern 2 new interpretations of the FDHF and 1 tri-hulled yacht concept in which a FDHF hull is combined with 2 additional space platforms.
Gran Displacement Hull (+Hull Vane): 30-40% more volume, high speed potential without performance penalties
- maximum interior space
- good performance and comfort
- patented FDHF
In this hull concept 30-40% more volume is created within the same length, without losing the good performance capacities of the FDHF. Normally a maximum volume yacht ends up in a full displacement design, but the performance results of the Gran Displacement Hull are still good at all speeds ranges. Especially when combined with a Hull Vane, as is part of this concept.
