Parametric Study 36ft

Hello,
I am student of yacht design in Falmouth, uk. At the moment I am compiling a list of ocean/offshore boats in from 32-39ft to compare with a design of my own, i have about 40 so far but to make a comprehensive study I will need more. Is there anyone who can suggest some?

If thatís your interest did you get a chance to read a paper by Robert G. Henry & Richards T. Miller first presented at a meeting of SNAME and later published as "Sailing Yacht Design" in 1965 by Cornell Maritime Press. Itís a great parametric study not so much for the extensive collection of data which is now somewhat dated but for the methodology used to analyze it. Worth a look,

Take a look at this. Here's a list of off shore boats (according to the author) ranging from 28' to 60'.

I hope this helps...

There is a spreadsheet at this site with data on almost 1300 boats. Nearly 400 of them are between 31.5 and 39.5 feet LOA.

http://www1.iwvisp.com/download/pub/...ail%20data.xls

It also includes a macro that does a comparison (as long as that doesn't take all the fun out of it for you).
