    The yacht design programs listed are all for Windows. Is there any good yacht design software for RedHat Linux or FreeBSD?

    HullForm is the only one I know of that is available as a Linux version: http://www.hullform.com/linux.html
    I myself don't run Linux on a desktop machine yet - just web servers, so I honestly haven't looked at this too much. I like the idea and stability of linux, but there aren't enough graphics and cad programs, and the ones I like, available to run natively under Linux to replace windows for me.

    Hi Guest,

    if you finally download the software, would you please let me know about it?
