How can Petestep reduce resistance by 35%?

2015.11.19 Author: Jonas Danielsson

Compared to a clean V-bottom hull, Petestep technology can reduce resistance by about 35% by removing a major part of the wetted surface and adding lift and thrust to the hull, while providing a significantly more comfortable ride. And compared to a spray rail hull with the same level of comfort, a Petestep hull has about 35% less resistance, by using a smaller deadrise angle.
