The authors have used a newly designed 41 foot performance cruiser to demonstrate the practical application of yacht design theory. Beginning with the yacht's specifications, the authors examine the vital topics of aero and hydrodynamics and conclude with practical matters such as the layout of the cockpit, deck and cabin, and provide a complete weight calculation for the boat.
