A nonlinear equation in terms of yawrate has been developed, the solutions of which are in good agreement with those of the usual cross-coupled nonlinear equations. There is enough flexibility in the form of the new equations to deal with the case of dynamically unstable ships, and the inclusion of nonlinear damping terms allow the shape of the phase portraits to be altered. It is quite feasible that this equation could be used to give a realistic simulation of ship maneuvers.
