Re: Modern Hull forms and Motion Comfort
There is an analogy between yacht hull design and automotive body design. New cars give better numbers in the computer model at cost of beauty and grace....though in application (not what it is capable of and/or size of engine/amount of sail area it takes to go the same speed) the difference is negligible.
