Abstract
This paper presents the requirements and design for a new hydrographic survey vessel for the Royal Netherlands Navy (RNLN). Based on the mission of the ship, a dedicated integrated hydrodynamic study was conducted at MARIN to verify compliance of the design with all requirements. Using this approach, an optimum balance between hydrodynamic, operational and economical requirements was found.
