    If you have a specific purpose, only a few hull forms will be desirable. What is your purpose, so we can limit the search?

    Sounds like a conspiracy theory where "shipyards and boat building pools" keep secret information. Do a quick search, even just in this site, and it will take you months to read all the free information.
