In this paper an attempt has been made to investigate the resistance characteristics of high-speed round bilge hull forms fitted with a vane in the stern region of the vessel. The Hull Vane ® is a fixed foil located below the waterline, aft of the stern of the vessel. The Hull Vane® reduces the generation of waves and the vessel’s motions in waves. The focus of this paper is to compare the total resistance of a single model from the AMECRC series of round bilge hull forms with and without Hull Vane® attached to the hull.
