Problem Addressed

With emerging applications for high speed boats in commercial, military and off shore industries, there is a focus in the naval architecture community to improve the efficiency and performance characteristics of planing hulls at high speeds. The Inventors have optimized the shape of the planing surface to reduce wetted surfaces while increasing lift created mostly by camber as opposed to angle of attack, thus dramatically reducing the total resistance of the planning hull for improved boat speed. Moreover, the combination of two dynamic forces applied (n the cambered planing surface and on the surface piercing hydrofoil) applied at relatively fixed points, as opposed to a single force moving along the bottom of a traditional planing hull pitching in waves, drastically reduces the motion response of the whole planing craft.
