BioDesign & Displacement  5.20
Allows creation of 3d Bezier polylines & patches, scale and rotation. Saves in dxf format.   (Added: 25-Sep-1999 Hits: 35868) | Rate | Visit
Boat Design Apprentice  0
An easy to use desktop application for designing hard-chine, flat-bottom boat hulls. The designer enters parameters describing the desired hull shape and the software draws lines plans, calculates design specifications and prepares the table of construction offsets. The application facilitates the design of simple hulls and encourages beginning designers to develop their working familiarity with key features of hull shape.

Delftship Free  8.60
DELFTship™free is a slightly simplified version of the professional hull modeling program but fully functional. Some of the more advanced features or file export formats have been excluded from the free version but otherwise both versions are completely the same. Files created by either version are also 100% exchangable without loss of information. The free edition is capable of displaying tanks created with the tank extension but the tanks can not be modified. DELFTship™ free is perfectly suited for students or home users who like to design and visualize ships in 3D or need to perform simple hydrostatic and resistance calculations.

FREE!ship  9.05
FREE!ship is a surface-modeler for designing ships.FREE!ship uses subdivisiong surfaces rather then NURBS to create any type of hullshape. Further more, FREE!ship is open-source and totally free.   (Added: 5-Jun-2005 Hits: 103768) | Rate | Visit
Free!Ship plus  9.67
FREE!ship Plus is further development of the program with free source code FREE!ship v2.6 under license GNU GPL. FREE!ship Plus it intended for the full parametric analysis of resistance and power prediction for a ship and other calculations of hydrodynamics of vessels and underwater vehicles. FREE!ship Plus allows the designer to simulate and analyze condition of balance of a complex completely hull - rudders - keels - engine - propellers in different regimes and of service conditions of a ship. The analyzable system includes a hull, appendages, a propeller and the engine (i.e. resistance, power, a thrust and a torque moment), and also various service conditions (heaving, a wind, a shallow-water effect, a regime of tow / pushing, etc.).

Hawaii Marine Templates  0
The Excel© spreadsheets and MathCAD© and Word© templates on this site are especially suited for utilization by nautical specialists. This includes naval architects, ship design engineers, marine engineers, ocean engineers, dredge engineers, marine salvage engineers, maritime regulators, boat designers and yacht designers. Ship, commercial boat and yacht owners and operators can also benefit from some of the boiler plate templates on this site. (Added: 11-Dec-2005 Hits: 6528) | Rate | Visit
Hull Resistance Calculator  1.93
Online calculator by Fiona Sinclair based on equations and formulae in "21st Century Multihulls" by Joseph Norwood Jr. The aim is to derive simple mathematical formulae for the design of minimum-resistance hulls. The formulae can be used either for non-planing displacement hulls or for multihull outriggers. It is assumed that the front section has semi-elliptic plan and exponential profile, while the rear section has exponential plan and semi-elliptic profile.
