    Hi,
    this is my first experience in design .I am looking for a boat very simple and in the meanwhile wonderful.
    I want to use double schooner-rigged tree and a pilot house to use as a living room in chinese style.
    What do you think about this setting?
    Now i have designed the hull and deck .
    Work in progress...

    There a devilish lack of shelter. Or is this a sheltered water craft?

    It's only a concept design to try the potentiality of rhinoceros.
    A similar real project have a displacement approximately (50-60 tons) and a ballast (17-25 tons)concern the performance of your boat.

    What happened to the pilothouse and dbl-schooner rig you referred to in your original post?
    And if the boats going to weigh 50+ tons, then your steering wheels are too big - unless you are 30ft tall of course!;)
    Otherwise, it looks kinda groovy to me:p

    Hi Satan (what is it with this name??),

    It looks to me that you are a bit inspired by the Wally designs (also from Italy). So these kind of boats can be done :D
    see www.wally.com

    Grtz,
    Arvy

    Thanks for replies.The style of this 3d model is similar to Wally S.Y. but my approximate reference about waterlines, l.o.a , and displacement is of another boat.
    I want to know because my steering wheels are too big...they're only 1,40 mt high respect deck.

    Hi sat...

    nice try though....

    wd be interesting to view on line a preliminary hull lines plan together with some hydrostatic data and stability curve....,
    is that your next idea?? :?:
    It looks like the forward end of waterlines are producing an angle of entrance with somewhat convex lines increasing perhaps the hull resistance :?: .... furthermore, a high ratio Bmax/BWL suggests increased wetted surface on heeling conditions when beating to windward:?: .....

    I also dont see much of openings for natural light to get inside undeer deck....

    nevertheless a good effort....:D would like to see further progress on the concept

    yades :cool:
