Roll yaw coupled dynamics are not well characterized and existing low cost models are limited in range of applicability. We utilize an interpolation based approach to address a wider range of conditions with reduced computational requirements. By interpolating test data to estimate hydrodynamic forces and empirically modeling roll damping and added mass, we establish a 4DOF maneuvering model for prismatic planing hulls in calm water. It is validated against relevant tests and show significant computational resource savings in comparison with potential flow based methods. Simulation of an extreme turning maneuver and an asymmetrical loading case demonstrates its potential for use in initial design, control and evaluation.
