The performance of raching yachts has increased significantly over the past 10-15 years without signifcant changes to the prediction methods used in the early stages of the design. Tank testing or CFD-simulation are not always an option and especially in the early stages of the design a requirement for reliable empirical methods exists. This paper discusses the applicability of these existing empirical resistance prediction methods for modern, high performance yachts based on tank testing of a generic planing hull.
