A design approach based on a numerical model of vessel motions in waves is developed. The underlying numerical model of the vessel motions in waves is validated through comparison to towing tank data for this type of craft. Alternative means to assess human performance on small high speed craft are reviewed and vibration dose value selected as the most appropriate. This design approach is implemented by employing a genetic algorithm to optimise principal particulars using the relevant human response data as an objective function together with a requirement to meet constraints on payload and sustained vessel speed. Application of the design procedure is demonstrated through a case study based on a high speed, hard chine interceptor craft. Hullforms may be optimised for a specific wave environment. These optimised hullforms are shown to have significantly lower vibration dose values than the original vessel.
