In recent years, fast ferries which are capable of speeds in excess of 40 knots in water depth less than 10m has been operational. As high-speed operations move near to shorelines, complaints from the public on extensive wave wake or wake wash from these fast vessels also increase. This paper investigates the effects of the bulbous bow on reducing the ship's wave-making resistance as a countermeasure for wake wash, and reports the results of model tests of the hull in both catamaran and monohull configurations.
