Initial Hull Design Software

Visualize and optimize vessel designs with the complete set of integrated naval architecture tools in MAXSURF. Create fair hull shapes, comply with stability requirements, minimize power requirements, and ensure crew and passenger comfort in varying sea states. Minimize structural weight while ensuring scantling compliance through initial modeling and stress analysis of beam and plate structures.

MAXSURF helps you redefine design excellence for any size vessel. Choose the version that fits your project needs:

  • MAXSURF Advanced – Optimize the design of larger and more complex vessels using an unlimited number of dynamically trimmed 3D NURBS surfaces for modeling the hull, appendages, and superstructure. Enable your naval architecture team with a full range of functions for designing power, sail, commercial, or naval vessels made from steel, aluminum, or composite materials. Develop optimal designs for smaller craft using up to 20 NURBS (non-uniform rational basis spline) surfaces.
  • MAXSURF Ultimate – Comply with the most demanding requirements by extending MAXSURF Advanced with probabilistic damage stability, advanced motions prediction, and dynamic structural analysis.
