It has been observed that up to 23 different model were racing the IOM worlds in 2014. These means that skippers has a broad range of designs when buying a new boat. This project aims to analyse different hull shapes of International One Metre Class in order to have the necessary technical information to know how the hull shapes affect the seakeeping and boat performance. Every year the number of skippers and design keep increasing (2825 last year), therefore understanding how an IOM boat performs is a topic of interest for many. Hull designers are looking for the best hull shapes with less resistance, better seakeeping, among other considerations. For this reason, the main goal of this project is to analyse the hull shapes and compare the important characteristic values using different computational solvers to analyse and compare the results obtained. As an academic document all the process done along the project is reflected; having all the statements, results and conclusions in the core of the document and adding any technical development or demonstration, which still relevant for the project, in the appendixes.
