In line with our commitment to bring the best available technology to our clients, we have successfully incorporated the award-winning ASD hull design into our flagship products.
Known as the Arrow System Design (ASD), it has been awarded the “Best technological innovation in all industrial fields” by the University of Udine (Italy).
The ASD remains today an innovative breakthrough in hull shape design that greatly reduces the limitations faced by current high-speed crafts.
A Hull Shape Above The Rest Crafts adopting ASD (Arrow Systems Design) hull shape offers the following advantages:
- High operational speeds
- Excellent dynamic stability (low heeling angles, when manoeuvring at high speeds)
- Reduced draft
- Excellent sea-keeping qualities
- Low radar cross section and infrared signature due to the peculiar shape of the ASD hull
Boats engineered with the ASD design have reached speeds from 40 knots to 86 knots (100 mph). In Spain, a 12 meters steel boat designed to ASD specifications, has broken records to reach 60 knots as well.
