    The normal thing is to have a SOR that, among other things, will define the type of hull to use. So, in my opinion, the first step would be to write a SOR and, with it, draw a GA plane to check if there is space on the ship for everything it has to carry.

    As I have told you, what you should prepare is the SOR of your ship, as detailed as possible. There are, indeed, many things to keep in mind, regulations to be fulfilled, scantlings, stability, security, comfort .... The same things as in a mono-hull, if this helps you.
