Tank Testing

Ensuring Hydrodynamic Performance

No matter how beautiful or comfortable your yacht is when moored, how it performs when moving through the water is key to how satisfied you'll be with your vessel. Large yachts are built to cruise vast distances and must be able to meet any kind of weather and sea conditions safely and in relative comfort.

That is why GCMNA studies and analyzes the hydrodynamic properties of your yacht. Using a combination of informational tools and computational fluid dynamics, we model your hull and its attachments to reduce drag, enhance manoeuvrability, maximize seakeeping ability and optimize performance. 

We have also used additional towing tank and testing facilities around the world, including the Maritime Research Institute Netherlands (MARIN) and the Center for Maritime Systems at the Stevens Institute of Technology in New Jersey.
