Princess 40m

April 2013

Princess 40m launched using CFD technology

“The Princess 40 metre is special to us because we won a World Superyacht Award,” reminisces Justin. “It was one of the first composite superyachts and it made us realise we were capable of doing these large yachts.”

The more than 35-year partnership between Princess and Olesinski has seen both firms thrive.

As well as being an award-winner the Princess 40 metre also marked the successful introduction of another new technology — Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). The software allows the efficiency of hulls to be tested digitally rather than requiring potentially expensive and time-consuming tank testing.

“We wanted to be able to visually tank test in the office so that we could become more efficient,” explains Justin. “We still ran five tank tests with the Princess 40m just to confirm that we were right. This was first time we used the CFD in parallel and it showed the same results. It was the first time we knew we could hang our hat on it.”
