Sailing Yacht Design 1 + Stability & Evaluation with ISO 12217

Enroll simultaneously in the Sailing Yacht Design 1 and Stability & Evaluation with ISO 12217 courses and learn the main aspects of the design of sailing yachts and gain a deep understanding of yacht stability and how to apply this knowledge to use the ISO 12217 Standard for assessment and categorization of sailing boats.

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 Stability & Evaluation with ISO 12217 is structured in three parts: stability theory, ISO 12217 Standard, and practical example. After completing the course, you will deeply understand ship stability and how to apply this knowledge to use the ISO 12217 Standard, “Small craft — Stability and buoyancy assessment and categorization,” Part 2, “Sailing boats of hull length greater than or equal to 6 m.” 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
