    The rest of the Shipping Industry does not build yachts thankfully.

    Abeking and others use very well respected Test Tanks to verify their designs before a vessel goes into production.

    If you want to call into question the results or interpolation of same I suggest you take it up with Abekings Design Dept and either HVSA or MARIN who do the testing and provide the ensuing data streams.

    I'm not calling anything into question. I am just looking at the industry variation. I am not expert in hydrodynamics but, from what it appears to be, the benefits of a bulbous bow comes into effect at a certain size or displacement? A lot of Lurssen's have them (over 60m, less Hermitage and probably some others) and I would venture to guess that Lurssen is fairly proficient in their tank tests such as Abeking.

    I have just heard that A&R extended their facilities for a few meters...obviously for the new 82m superyacht. In fact they cut a hole in the wall and extended it. Looks like they have already been pretty much to their limits with the 78m yachts in the past.
    BTW their order book is filled until 2015!

    Hmm...I haven't seen anything in the last few months. Just some works in the office building.
