In the present paper we will compare 3D RANS/FS computations including free trim and sinkage for a ship at a given draught and speed with available experimental data, showing the capabilities of our method. The comparison includes predicted resistance values, stern wave patterns and dynamical trim and sinkage values for various trim wedges.
