This paper presents the results of manoeuvring model tests and CFD calculations for a twin-screw ferry with diﬀerent skeg lengths. The impact of these skeg conﬁgurations on diﬀerent aspects of ship hydrodynamics, such as hull resistance, turning ability and low-speed manoeuvring, are analyzed and discussed. It is shown how the skeg inﬂuences in both positive and negative ways the hydrodynamic design of the ship, with particular attention to ship manoeuvrability.
