In the course of 1996 a systematic investigation was conducted to identify measures which improve the passenger comfort on board large motor yachts. The work, which was based on information from literature and in-house model test results, numerical predictions and dedicated model tests, lead to a number of general observations and conclusions regarding the hydrodynamics and seakeeping of motor yachts, which are described in this paper.
