Motor Yachts

It was Van Oossanen Naval Architects’ expertise with hydrodynamics and hull and appendage design that drove certain well-known builders of motor yachts to approach us some 20 years ago for advice on critical design issues, particularly those involving high-speed vessels.

Our involvement rapidly grew to being responsible for the complete naval architecture package. Our revolutionary development of the patented Fast Displacement Hull Form (FDHF) is evidence of our leading position in motor yacht design. This round bilge hull form is more efficient than any other contemporary hull form up to fully planing speeds. Superior both in fuel savings and sailing comfort.

This defines our position today: leading dynamic creators of complete design concepts, realizing even higher levels of performance and comfort. We are able to create up to 40 per cent more interior space on a Fast Displacement Hull without compromising on its performance. Experience this.
