    I understand it's an old thread but how about a round bilge with a full length chine ?? Looks good for stability and interior habitability, doesn't it ? Wetted surface similar to a round bilge. A boat i am interested in is designed this way.
    Thanks, Oscar

    We need a picture or at least the boat/ manufacturer.
    Your description could mean different things to different people.
    Some of us don't have a very good imagination - or at least it does not match others. :rolleyes:

    Yes a picture is better than a long story ! It seems many recent boats are designed this way, hence my question.
    As an example, below is the hull picture of a 53' german boat designed by FinoteConq (sister ship reviewed/video by YachtingWorld), a source of inspiration for my project.

    A picture is great - if it shows the feature.
    I don't see anything but a round bilged hull.
    Another?

    Two additionnal examples to illustrate my question : (dont know how to directly post pictures on this forum)
    2 very different boats, 2 different designers, a light 36' and an heavy hight latitudes aluminium exped yacht ;
    Pogo 36 sailboat design review http://sailingmagazine.net/article-1709-pogo-36-sailboat-design-review.html
    Expedition Yacht Qilak 2 http://sailingmagazine.net/article-2066-expedition-yacht-qilak-2.html

    PS: Just found out this thread was about multis, i had just looked at the title after doing some research on full length chines, perhaps a moderator can move these last posts to monohulls ?
