Hull & propulsion

Each type of yacht has her own requirements for the optimal hull shape. The team at Gaastmeer combines extensive practical sailing experience with thorough theoretical knowledge of hydrodynamics.

Each hull is faired in 3D with the aid of specialized computer software. In this process, the hull is faired to optimize low resistance and efficient pro- pulsion, while keeping a close watch on stability and ease of construction.

Dependent on the user profile, the type of propulsion is determined and the required installed power calculated. In special cases, such as the development of a revolutionary hull shape, model tests can be arranged.
