Yacht description of Motor yacht Alive in Maritime Holland Magazine

|

Maritime Holland published an extensive article on the 42 meter motor yacht Alive, the first superyacht  equipped with a Hull Vane. The article describes the reasons why Heesen Yachts opted for the combination of Van Oossanen Naval Architects’s patented Fast Displacement Hull Form (FDHF) and Hull Vane for their new series.

The result is an unmatched combination of comfort and fuel-economy of a round-bilge displacement yacht with a top speed well above the norm in this segment.

Van Oossanens Fast Displacement Hull Form (FDHF) and Hull Vane in the press

|

SuperYacht Times visited Heesen shipyard recently. With a tour at Heesen the projects 17470 and 17255 featured the Fast Displacement Hull Form (FDHF).

The innovation was designed by Van Oossanen, and is so called because the hull does not rely on the development of hydrodynamic lift for efficiency, but stays in displacement mode.

This is a hull form that, compared to a hard-chine hull form, is 30% more efficient at cruising speeds and 15% more efficient at high speeds. In comparison to traditional round-bilge hull forms, significant improvements were also obtained both at cruising speeds and at higher speeds. Model tests confirmed these results and also revealed that a hard-chine hull form is only more efficient than the FDHF counterpart at fully planing speeds.

The final project SuperYacht Times had the privilege of viewing was the first yacht of a 42 metre series for Heesen Yachts, featuring the first application of the Hull Vane. Also designed by Van Oossanen Naval Architects.

The Hull Vane consists of a foil positioned below the hull of a ship or yacht in a specific location by means of struts or sponsons. The device changes the pressure distribution on the hull thereby reducing the resistance. The foil also generates a thrust force. Studies for a number of displacement motor yachts have resulted in fuel savings of up to 25% and averaging 20% over the total speed range.

Hull Vane also reduces the motion and acceleration of the yacht in heavy seas due to the damping effect of the foil below the hull. When the bow pitches upwards on a wave the foil produces an opposing upwards force at the stern, and vice versa when the bow pitches downwards into a wave trough.

Van Oossanen’s Hull Vane: Nose jobs are out, butt lifts are the latest fashion

|

Van Oossanen’s invention of the Hull Vane could be considered as one of the

most interesting innovations in underwater appendages for reducing a ship’s

resistance since the invention of the bulbous bow in the late 19th century. The

Hull Vane consists of a (hydro)foil positioned below the aft hull bottom of a

vessel, way below the water surface. With the bulb forming an integrated part

of the forward hull of a vessel, the Hull Vane is an add-on below the stern of the

vessel by means of struts. Both however have similar purposes: reducing the

vessel’s resistance.

Galactica Star in Maritime by Holland Magazine

|

At the Monaco Yacht Show 2013, one of the yachts gathering the most attention was Heesen’s new flagship, called Galactica Star. It is the Dutch superyacht builder’s largest yacht to date, and also the first all-aluminium yacht with the patented Fast Displacement Hull Form (FDHF) by Van Oossanen Naval Architects. The sleekness of her underwater lines is matched by a unique helmet-shaped superstructure, giving the yacht a sporty look, a far cry of many of the wedding-cake-styled yachts in this size range.
