42m M/Y Alive


Scope of case study

Lenght: 42m
Built by: Heesen Yachts
CFD, tank testing, sea trials
Maximum speed: 16.4 knots
Resistance reduction achieved:

  • 20.4% at 12.0 knots
  • 23.2% at 14.5 knots

Interesting fact

The high resistance reduction caused by the Hull Vane® makes this yacht go as fast with a pair of 12V engines as it would go with 16V engines without Hull Vane®. The range increased from 3.250 miles to 4.000 miles. Additional benefits from this are reduced noise and vibrations, and a reduced engine room size. M/Y Alive was launched in 2014.
