    I'm guessing this hull design trades more vertical movement for less roll. Also probably better efficiency. Anybody knows how that type rides? Has it been used before in yachts?

    Ok. I went through all the links and some of the sublinks. Extremely interesting discussions. Very informative, occasionally humorous posts and some highly qualified people!

    The Sevolution hull isn't however a trimaran or any of the others illustrated; as far as I can tell it doesn't have tunnels. It's still a monohull.

    What it does is delay the hull impact with the sea hence my idea that it probably reduces pitch and roll for more vertical movement of the center of mass.
    (Also that's supposed to be a longer endurance boat, not a speedster. Speed being very prominent in the linked discussions)

    Odd waterline for a monohull.

    Too much celebrating prior to the painting?
