    Hi everybody!
    I want to present my Boatdesign.net's friends our new baby, Moon Yacht Design, a Design Studio devoted to recreational crafts, yachts and special professional boats like patrol ones, etc.

    Pedro Pernas, Naval Architect and Oceanic Engineer, Javier Ferrín, Industrial Designer and myself are the design team. Naval architecture calculations, etc, are performed in collaboration with Gestenaval (www.gestenaval.com).

    This newborn is still in its first steps in life: the site is still under development, only a few images and info have been uploaded, as well as it is in Spanish for the time being. But we love it :) and it will improve and grow up day by day.

    You may find it at: www.moonyachtdesign.com

    Regards.

    All the best for your new studio....and Nice looking patrol boat. I like the radar arch ventilator detail.

    Im curious...why square sterned patrol craft ? Increased range ? I see many round stern patrol, harbormaster, sea ambulance boats in the Med , in the style of Italian architect Vincenzo Catarsi.

    These round stern Calafuria or Piculjan Rab type boats look less vulnerable for close in work.

    The best of luck on your design voyage.

    I agree that a round stern is less prone to waves bashing the hull and wetting the rear deck area while maintaining a static position or anchored/secured to a stalled craft "in distress" and while in rough seas. Also stopping quickly with reverse throttle waiting for a rear wave to back wash you is not much fun if you are the one "on-deck".

    However, a square stern may be better for hooking into things with a long pole as it provides a good footing or standing area. Also it may serve as a RIB launching area.

    On much larger craft these squared areas allow for helicopter landings, but I doubt they would scale this design up that much.

    The patrol craft has a "get down to business" look about it, the chosen viewing angles lend a aggressive stance or tone about it. I like it, is it self-righting?

    The more rounded civilian craft look "fun" and a bit "stocky" adding to a cartoon-like character. I really like these designs, the guardrail details are cool too.

    Thank you Michael, Olav, daiquiri and kach22i ! :)
    The squared stern is quite usual around here for patrol crafts. Kach has got some of the reasons, as well as it provides a better planning surface astern and ease of construction. Although GRP is a possibility, it has been originally conceived for aluminium.
    Cheers!
