A program of Experiments with a series of four geometrically similar yacht hull models was conducted in the HYDRONAUTICS’ Ship Model Basin with the aim of improving engineering methods for model/full-scale correlation.

The paper presents a brief review of the background of existing hydrodynamic performance prediction methods, outlines a number of scaling problems, and presents results from the family of models tested.
