    Hi, I am new to this field and excuse me for asking stupid questions.
    I was wondering how buying a hull design software works for ship construction companies. Is it like MS Windows for enterprise which you contract for certain number of years and renew every time?

    If you decide that the software is obsolete or feel the need to upgrade, does the vendor upgrade it for you or do you have to find another company?

    Every software vendor has its own commercial strategy and they can be very varied. Ask your favorite or nearest retailer.
