A new energy saving hull architecture with high hydrodynamic efficiency, as scientifically tested by skilled Institutes such as:

- I.N.S.E.A.N. C.N.R. National Research Council - Italian Ship Model Basin - Institute of the Towing Tank of Rome,  

- Navy Department of UNITS - University of Trieste,

- University of Stockholm (Sweden) - KTH Royal Institute of Technology. 

 

Italian and international patent, able to obtain a reduction in hydrodynamic resistance  and to optimize hull performances, with the following results:

·                    Higher speeds than of displacement hulls

​​·                    Power and construction and operating cost less than a planing hull

·                    Greater comfort in navigation of a planning hull

 

Characteristics of this Monotricat hull:

·                    Low wake at all speeds

·                    Kinetic energy from bow wave drives turbulent flow, reducing friction of aftship

·                    Variable pressure under hull  "mono-stab" effect

·                    Improved efficiency of propellers due to clean and accelerated flow under aftship

·                    Bow creates similar effect on sea-keeping like the complex wave-piercing bow   

                   comfort in navigation, even in adverse sea and weather conditions

·                    Unlike conventional hulls high propulsion efficiency can even be obtained with a

                   L/B from 3 to 3,6 →  high transverse stability and generous under/deck space. 

The MONOTRICAT Hull has been presented in:
