Patented hull technology
for a better ride
Petestep® deflectors lower slamming in seaway and reduce G-force by up to 50%, with unmatched ride comfort as a result
No more clatter and clinking from the hull! Petestep® hulls create a lot less noise from the sea, therefore significantly adding to the comfort of the ride
Up to 35% less energy is required to propel the boat forward, in effect lowering fuel consumption and increasing range
Petestep® hulls increases stability regardless whether at speed or at the dock, thus making you feel safer on the water
“I’ve never felt anything like it – it really is amazing!”

The Petestep® spray deflectors
Our patented technology with the unique combination of significantly higher comfort combined with the best planing efficiency in the industry
How does it work?
Spray water makes a difference
Our patented technology utilizes the otherwise wasted spray water, and creates a significant increase in efficiency and comfort
Conventional spray rails
Spray rails are noisy and in addition make the boat slam harder in waves. By pushing spray water to the sides of the boat, spray rails also waste hydrodynamic energy, resulting in a significantly higher fuel consumption than necessary.
Petestep deflectors redirect the otherwise wasted spray water down and aft, consequently providing a lift and forward thrust force on the boat. The combined result is a much lower energy need than other V-bottom hulls.

Petestep to optimize comfort and performance levels as well as increased efficiency at top speeds.
The electrojet’s range was extended by 15% up to 2 hours, as well as increased top speed
How can we help
For all boat models, we design the Petestep® hull to suit this particular model’s intended use and characteristics, along with its specific engine options. This ensures that the boat will always run with great comfort combined with maximum efficiency.
Most projects start in a feasibility stage, where Petestep supplies predictions of the performance and powering requirements. This also occasionally includes a comparison to a conventional hull, in order to illustrate the performance differences
We can handle most advanced analyses on planing hulls, including turning and wave simulations. Also how propulsion systems such as water jet and surface drives affect the performance and seakeeping.
