Naval Architecture

Performance at its best

You want your yacht or ship to excel in performance, in terms of efficiency, safety and comfort. Van Oossanen can realise your dream. We are independent naval architects with a wealth of experience. As members of half a dozen America’s Cup design teams and due to our continuous work on motor yachts, we have created cutting edge design technology and used that technology in numerous designs. We are not afraid to innovate and can provide reliable design solutions on short term deadline.

Hull Forms®
We develop new concepts and provide the associated preliminary and final design. Our innovative Hull Forms, like the patented Fast Displacement Hull Form (FDHF), guarantee your yacht optimal performance at all speeds. New evolutions of the FDHF like the Fast Displacement XL®, the Gran Displacement Hull  and Be-3 benefit speed and (exterior and interior) space as well.

We manage
Through intensive research projects, we know and understand the physical principles of an optimal design, as well as the key performance features of each new concept. Together with our practical experience on the water, this enables us to make important decisions in all design stages. After delivery, you can count on us for high quality lifetime services to keep your yacht register information up-to-date. Contact us.
