IMPROVED EFFICIENCY FROM  REDUCED WETTED SURFACES AND RESISTANCE
 

Air is the key ingredient – pressurized air – entrapped under the hull. Suitable for mono- and multihull vessels – see under water pictures!

The hull integrated air cushion chambers, will support and separate hull and water. In some cases more than 80% of the hull weight is “air cushion borne”. For larger Air Supported Ships the support rate is less.

An ASV is designed for a minimum of air cushion ventilation.

No rubber bags, skirts or other vulnerable remedies are needed. Solid and rigid hull parts sustain the function.

ASV designs can be “tailor made” and / or optimized for different functions, all depending on the end user’s requirements and vessel operation.
