Description: This book takes a broad view of the multihull concept and its design. We go into some depth on the hydrodynamics of such vessels while also aiming to give the reader an appreciation of what it takes to create a multihull as a project, where the underwater configuration is the starting point. A naval architect or marine engineer will be sensitive to the need to strike a balance between the configuration selection based on the service requirement and the consequences of that choice of vessel geometric form for the structure, powering, motions, and total cost of ownership (TCO).1
Thus, this is a naval architecture book rather than simply a hydrodynamics text. For a more detailed treatment of hydrodynamics for such vessels, readers are referred to texts given in the references and listed in the resources section at the back of the book. University libraries should have access to printed or electronic versions. We will refer to the subject matter covered in these other resources as we progress, taking a project delivery approach. Nevertheless, we present an overall approach to selecting and analyzing the form of a multihull vessel based on work at MARIC, where two of the authors have dedicated their careers to high-speed marine technology. This work, in turn, is linked throughout the text to research in Norway, the UK, Australia, and, more recently, the USA and further developed using the major project execution experience of author Bliault.
