Hull Design Efficiency ChallengeBack to all challenges
TriNav Marine Design Inc.
St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labradorhttps://trinavmarinedesign.com/
Newfoundland and Labrador’s TriNav Marine Design has been designing fishing boats for the Atlantic Canadian market for 25 years.
The company submitted its proposal to the ACOA Hull Design Challenge to fine tune one of their existing designs.
“We wanted to incorporate some innovative design features into our typical and popular 14.9 meter fishing vessel. The fishing industry has always needed to be innovative, and this (Challenge) is an important step forward focusing exclusively on hull efficiency.”
What do they think of the challenge format?
“With 25 plus years experience and a leading designer of fishing boats in the Atlantic region, we felt we needed to be a participant. Competition in a friendly challenge is always interesting.”
