Hull Design: The Most Important Buying Decisions You Can Make in A New Boat

Whether you use your boat in open water or protected areas, there is nothing else that will make as much difference in your boating pleasure as the design of your hull.

Much has been written about the different designs of V-hulls and certainly there is a vast difference in the performance and rise of these hulls, but almost without exception, a catamaran design hull will ride superior to any V-hull. It’s simple, catamarans ride better because they have two hulls. Think about this for a moment.The sharper and deeper you make a V-hull, the better it cuts through the water. The problem is, when you stop, the single V-hull boat rocks constantly because you are sitting on a point. Catamarans have much sharper and deeper hulls than V-hulls and they have two, which add to their stability, when either going slow or stopped.

But, all catamarans are not the same. So what is happening on a catamaran and why are they such great riding hulls? To answer these questions, we went to one of the leading power catamaran designers, Roger Dunshee, of Twin Vee Catamarans, Inc. He currently has eleven hull lengths in production and sells more power catamarans than any other manufacturer in the United States….exceptional performance with great fuel economy!Roger tells us his catamarans use a combination of both displacement and planing factors. The entry is very sharp and cuts through the water, while the remaining hulls lift to allow the boat the use of smaller engines, for exceptional performance with great fuel economy!
