The feasibility and performance of a trimaran yacht concept equipped with a Hull Vane

|

On May 13th 2015 Hull Vane’s Project Manager Kasper Uithof presented a paper on the application of a Hull Vane on a 50 meter trimaran yacht. The paper was presented at the International Conference on the Design and Construction of Super and Mega Yachts in Genoa, Italy.

Kasper elaborated upon the design of a trimaran yacht, equipped with a Hull Vane. This design proves to have great benefits when compared to an equivalent monohull on the basis of costs, energy efficiency, seakeeping comfort and luxury.

The conference was organized by the Royal Institute of Naval Architects. A copy of the paper is available here.
