Benefits Hull Vane®

Maximum operability

  • Reduced motions in waves means a stable platform for the crew to execute their mission.
  • Reduced seasickness of passengers enhance the experience on board

    Reduced fuel costs

    • Lower operational expenditure (OPEX) due to reduced fuel consumption (5–25%)
    • Applies to conventional fuels as well as alternative sources of energy, such as batteries, methanol, hydrogen, etc.
    • Greater range (or same range at a higher speed), due to reduced fuel consumption.

    Future ready

    • Reduced CO2, NOx and SOx emissions thanks to improved fuel consumption.
    • Fewer batteries needed to produce the same range and top speed on board electric vessels.
    • Conversion to other fuel is made easier due to less vessel resistance.
      • Less capacity for hydrogen needed.
      • Conversion to methanol is easier without increasing fuel capacity.

    Foil Assist benefits

    • Improved sailing comfort and safety.
    • Reduced pitching and slamming.
    • Improved sailing behaviour.
    • Less spray for a drier ride.
    • Higher speed when sailing through waves
    • Reduced seasickness.
