Navatek HDV100 lifting body technology demonstrator

In 2004, Navatek built and tested a second large-scale, lifting body technology demonstrator craft, called the HDV® (Hybrid Deep-Vee).

The 100-foot ship featured an anti-slamming, deep-vee monohull as the parent hull, mated to a Navatek experimental “blended-wing” lifting body. The HDV-100 initially operated without a lifting body allowing Navatek to conduct additional research on large deep-vee hullforms. The lifting body was installed in Fall 2005 and sea trials were conducted in 2006, proving the feasibility of installing underwater lifting bodies on monohulls as well as catamaran hull forms. Navatek currently operates the HDV-100 as a technology test bed.
