THE LOW WATER PLANE MULTI-HULL SHIP PRINCIPLES, STATUS, AND PLANS FOR NAVAL DEVELOPMENT

The basic principles and values of the Low Water Plane (LWP) multi-hull concept are presented, i.e., its promise as a hull form to minimize motions and maximize speed in seaways. Current and recent research and development are described. Then a plan for developing the concept is laid out with an accompanying generic R&D program.
