Sailing yachts made easy

Why?

We want to make sailing yacht design and sailing yacht performance calculation accessible to everybody so that everybody can unlock their passion and creativity in a field that has been mainly reachable only to some.

How?

Our ambition is to create a world-class tool that is beautiful, engaging, inexpensive, and straightforward. This tool must simultaneously provide professional results and eliminate the barriers that have prevented the non-initiated to enter the field they love.

Seriously? But why?

Being passionate about sailing and yachts, we gave us the challenge of designing one. We studied both the main papers and the leading bibliography, but we were not able to find a professional, inexpensive, and easy-to-use tool that was able to get our journey started. We decided to create it.

Acknowledgments

Navalapp builds on the tremendous work carried out by researchers, sailors, and other professionals of several naval fields and on their findings and celebrates all these men and women who, with their effort, have brought some light to the fascinating world of sailing.

Enjoy

Create multiple yachts, compare their performance in different wind and sea conditions. Modify their hulls, keels, sails, and rigs and check how their performance is affected. Refine your designs and introduce in real life the improvements you have validated. Use the newly acquired knowledge when cruising, racing, or supporting your preferred competing team. Compare multiple designs and rig configurations when buying a new yacht.
