Sailing Yacht Design 1 + Sail Design 1

Enroll simultaneously in the Sailing Yacht Design 1 and Sail Design 1 courses and learn the main aspects of the design of sailing yachts and gain a deep understanding of all the different aspects to be considered when designing a new sail: rig, geometry, materials, aerodynamics, design phases, manufacturing, and sails inventories.

What is a Bundle?

A bundle is a collection of courses we have wrapped up for you based on criteria such as complementarity, reinforcement, and/or enlargement of the subjects covered in each one.

Bundles also allow for the development of different learning paths by bringing together courses relevant to an area of knowledge related to Yacht Design. With bundles, we can guide our Students in their journey better.

They also enable us to offer the courses at a discount. Instead of enrolling sequentially in different courses, Students can now enroll in several simultaneously and benefit from a price reduction.

What is included in this bundle?

This bundle gives you access to the following courses:

This Sailing Yacht Design 1 course covers the main aspects of the design of sailing yachts: theoretical fundamentals, yacht modeling, hull and appendage resistance, sail forces, stability, and velocity prediction programs. During the course, the instructors guide you through the first design cycle of a new sailing yacht, showing their methodology and the software they use, and explaining the design decisions and trade-offs made. You can learn more about this course by visiting the course’s page.

The course Sail Desing 1 aims to give a good insight into the various aspects of sail design and manufacturing to get a clearer picture of what’s behind the finished sails and all the work put into them. It will introduce you to the different aspects a sail designer must consider when designing a new sail, and is structured into several modules, each covering different aspects of sail design: rig, geometry, materials, aerodynamics, design phases, manufacturing, and sails inventories. You can learn more about this course by visiting the course’s page.


The courses are video-based and on-demand and can be followed at your own pace. The courses in the bundle are independent: they can be done in parallel or sequentially. You can start any of them regardless of whether you have completed the other. You can organize your learning to match your preferencesbackground, and availability.

Each course contains videosquizzes, and downloadable documents and gives you access to the course’s virtual private classroom, where you can interact with the instructors and fellow students. Students completing a course will obtain the corresponding course Certificate. Each course issues its own Certificate.

Maxsurf software license

In some lessons of the course Sailing Yacht Design 1, the instructors use marine vessel design and analysis software Maxsurf. Students do not need this software to follow the course or to obtain the course certificate.

However, for those interested, we offer Navalapp PRO members a FREE Maxsurf Ultimate Academic Version License. You can read more about this offer here.

RINA Endorsement

The Royal Institution of Naval Architects Endorsement

After a thorough evaluation, the Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA) has found that Navalapp’s courses Sailing Yacht Design 1 and Sail Design 1 meet the requirements for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) of the Institution. Therefore, RINA has considered that the courses warrant their recognition and has issued a Certificate of Endorsement.

During the evaluation, RINA studied different aspects of the courses, such as learning aims, content and structure, whether the information is up-to-date and is factually correct, students’ evaluations of the course, the supporting information and materials, the instructors’ expertise, the method by which the students are evaluated, and Navalapp’s organization standards.

Welcome aboard, and enjoy the courses!
