  • Boat Design Apprentice  9.00
    An easy to use desktop application for designing hard-chine, flat-bottom boat hulls. The designer enters parameters describing the desired hull shape and the software draws lines plans, calculates design specifications and prepares the table of construction offsets. The application facilitates the design of simple hulls and encourages beginning designers to develop their working familiarity with key features of hull shape.

  • CAESES  7.00
    Free parametric boat design and general purpose CAD software including intact stability calculation and interfaces to link to simulation software, like VPPs or CFD codes. FRIENDSHIP SYSTEMS GmbH (Added: 6-Oct-2013 Hits: 5778)  My Links | Rate | Cached | Visit CAESES
  • Delftship Free  8.60
    DELFTship™free is a slightly simplified version of the professional hull modeling program but fully functional. Some of the more advanced features or file export formats have been excluded from the free version but otherwise both versions are completely the same. Files created by either version are also 100% exchangable without loss of information. The free edition is capable of displaying tanks created with the tank extension but the tanks can not be modified. DELFTship™ free is perfectly suited for students or home users who like to design and visualize ships in 3D or need to perform simple hydrostatic and resistance calculations.   (Added: 8-Apr-2008 Hits: 34830)  My Links | Rate | Cached | Visit Delftship Free
  • FREE!ship  9.05
    FREE!ship is a surface-modeler for designing ships.FREE!ship uses subdivisiong surfaces rather then NURBS to create any type of hullshape. Further more, FREE!ship is open-source and totally free.   (Added: 5-Jun-2005 Hits: 117401)  My Links | Rate | Cached | Visit FREE!ship
  • Archive: Free!Ship plus  9.67
    FREE!ship Plus is further development of the program with free source code FREE!ship v2.6 under license GNU GPL. FREE!ship Plus it intended for the full parametric analysis of resistance and power prediction for a ship and other calculations of hydrodynamics of vessels and underwater vehicles. FREE!ship Plus allows the designer to simulate and analyze condition of balance of a complex completely hull - rudders - keels - engine - propellers in different regimes and of service conditions of a ship. The analyzable system includes a hull, appendages, a propeller and the engine (i.e. resistance, power, a thrust and a torque moment), and also various service conditions (heaving, a wind, a shallow-water effect, a regime of tow / pushing, etc.).

  • Hull Resistance Calculator  1.93
    Online calculator by Fiona Sinclair based on equations and formulae in "21st Century Multihulls" by Joseph Norwood Jr. The aim is to derive simple mathematical formulae for the design of minimum-resistance hulls. The formulae can be used either for non-planing displacement hulls or for multihull outriggers. It is assumed that the front section has semi-elliptic plan and exponential profile, while the rear section has exponential plan and semi-elliptic profile.

  • Archive: Hullform  5.10
    Hullform is the name given to a family of hull design programs. They have been continuously developed since the 1980s, running initially on a large mainframe computer (remember those?), then on IBM-compatible PCs running MS-DOS (remember those?). It now runs under Windows (including Windows 7) and "x86"-based Linux systems. The source files, Makefile and LCC-win32 project file are now available for download. These files are provided without warranty of any kind, and no support is offered.   (Added: 4-Jan-2004 Hits: 75068)  My Links | Rate | Cached | Archive
  • JSDN  0
    jSDN is a NURBS based yacht modeling and analysis software. It is based on SDN, but it has been redesigned with many new functionalities and much more accurate calculations, which are being validated with real designs. Although SDN was programmed in C, jSDN has been developed using the Java language, so that it can be run on many operating systems. The only requisites are a Java virtual machine and the Java 3D software (J3D 1.4 or above). The main goal of jSDN is allowing the designer to fast prototype any kind of sailing yacht, including elements like hull, spars, sails and appendages. Although it is not limited to sailing vessels, both the working procedure and tools are targeted and optimized for those. (Added: 12-Jun-2008 Hits: 9301)  My Links | Rate | Cached | Visit JSDN
