PEMD Case Study: Instrumented sea-trials and analysis
Trials were conducted on-board the MarySlim, a high performance custom built vessel for adventurous cruising. The hull is based on the Very Slender Vessel (VSV) concept and the vessel is propelled by single water jet. The discerning owner has been constantly developing the vessel to further improve the performance of this impressive vessel. The trials were used to establish the current handling characteristics and provide insight into the effect of further modifications.
