High Performance Racing Yachts: An Experimental Comparison of the Latest Hydrofoil Configurations

Abstract

Despite the omnipresence of hydrofoil-assisted monohulls and the inherent development phases to refine their design, very little scientific data has reached the public domain. Moreover, following the trend set by the racing yachts, the pleasure craft industry is now looking at the implementation of foils onto yachts and superyachts, with several vessels already built. This poster presents a hydrodynamic comparison of three contemporary options, namely a Dynamic Stability System, a Dali-Moustache and a Chistera foil, that have been towing tank tested on a 1:10 scale model of a 50ft hull.
