    The hull lines of the new 8.5m Sports Cat Design 256 Mad Max , Previously Carbon Copy . She was designed in 1997 but she's the current (2016) title holder of the Australian Multihull Chamionships (2 successive years) and the fastest inshore racing boat in Australian waters.

  2. Trimaran Hull Performance

    Recent tests (2009) on a small prototype trimaran with this Box-hull form and flat bottom, demonstrated that performance can be surprisingly good and some of what is lost through increased wetted surface is indeed made up by the slimmer form. While this may not be true at low speeds (below say 4 kt), the flat of bottom may give enough dynamic ...

    USA-17—a 90-foot-long (27 m) trimaran, type BOR90. A traditional paraw double-outrigger sailboat from the Philippines. A trimaran (or double-outrigger) is a multihull boat that comprises a main hull and two smaller outrigger hulls (or "floats") which are attached to the main hull with lateral beams. Most modern trimarans are sailing yachts designed for recreation or racing; others are ...

  6. Trimaran Design Planning

    As noted above, the Froude Speed/Length ratio is very significant in boat design. Most descriptions and findings re hull resistance are directly related to it. For example it has been shown that a displacement hull creates a wave equal to its length at a S/L ratio of 1.34 and at that point, there's such a hump in the resistant curve that most ...

  7. Catamaran Hull Design

    Typically this will be 8-10:1 for a slow cruising catamaran (or the main hull of most trimarans), 12-14:1 for a performance cruiser and 20:1 for an extreme racer. ... The most important catamaran design hull shape factor, is the Prismatic Coefficient (Cp). This is a measure of the fullness of the ends of the hull.

    A fat hull will have high form drag. A hull too skinny will have higher drag from skin friction. We want asymmetric water planes and a reasonably flat rocker to minimise pitching. A fine entry will minimise slamming in short steep waves and throw less spray. A flat run aft in cross section will promote planing or semi planing at speed.

Most boats nowadays use some sort of v-hull or hybrid design, like a semi-displacement hull; especially larger boats. So not a lot of boats have a real flat bottom. However, we do call a lot of boats flat-bottomed. ...

  13. trimaran hull shapes

    Waterline beam is 20". draft 16". The hull shape is a fine oval at the bow, becoming egg-shaped, then becoming a 6" flat aft. With high buoyancy in the stern of the main hull and in the bows of the ammas, the pitch-damping can be felt through the seat of the pants and works very well.

  14. PDF Considerations of Cross-deck Structural Design of Trimaran Vessels

    The benefits of the trimaran hull form have been studied extensively over the past several years at the University College London (UCL) [1]. In 2000 the RV TRITON, Figure 1 below, a trimaran demonstrator project for the United Kingdom's Royal Navy, was launched to test the trimaran hull form [2]. Figure 1 - RV Triton [2]

  19. Why You Want a Trimaran: Pros and Cons of a Trimaran

    The trimaran separates these two design requirements. In a trimaran, the central hull provides most of the ship buoyancy (90-95% usually). It does this with a long, narrow hull. And then the outer hulls, called amas, provide the stability. This arrangement allows incredible flexibility in the hull design. Due to the wide separation between ...

  20. Using catamaran hulls to make a trimaran

    Place the widest one with most volume in the center. Obviously, if you kept the hull in this level position, your trimaran would be dragging 3 hulls through the water with far more drag than for a catamaran. So you need to lower the central hull, so that it will support your 900 lbs .. requiring 14 cu.ft volume under the waterline.
