A Dutch innovation of a Trimonoran introduces a whole new way of sailing: faster, safer, more comfortable and sustainable: A revolutionary breakthrough in the world of ship design.
This innovative tri-hull is comprised of three slim hulls and wings. That makes this model faster than the traditional mono hulls, it also provides a larger deck surface and a significantly spacious interior of the boat as well. Furthermore, this hull turned out safer than a catamaran or trimaran.The design by Mr. G.J. Bilkert has been granted with various subsidies by the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs.
Naval architect Van Oossanen, The Netherlands, developed and optimized this design since 2010 till the very detail, using state of the art computer simulations. Van Oossanen compared both resistance and speed of the Trieadrieame with existing motor yachts and a well-known 50 feet sailing boat. The slim hulls have little water resistance in both sailing and motor yacht models and easily reach speeds of twenty knots depending on the engine power or sail size. This model is significantly faster than the traditional mono-hull under similar circumstances.
The specific model of the hull provides stability of the Trieadrieame, even with higher angles of inclination. The hull shows a positive stability till more than 90 degrees. This means a significant improvement in comparison with the catamarans and trimarans.
Statistics show an average decrease of more than 30% in fuel consumption when used for a motor boat. It proves the economy of this Trimonoran. The combination of lower fuel costs, larger living space and more safety adds to the commercial attractiveness of the concept.
With some modifications the model also is suitable for commercial shipping, ferries and navy ships.
The designer has obtained a patent for their ingenious model and is now looking for professional investors and boat builders to develop a prototype.
The Trieadrieame is suitable for both sailing- and motor yachts in lengths between 12 to 25 meters.

Lack of standard user interfaces across bridge equipment is a major concern for maritime safety. Pilots are in a unique position, as they are constantly exposed to new and differing bridge working environments, equipment, interface designs and combinations of systems. As pilots face this problem throughout every shift they need to put in considerable effort to adjust their work to the many user interfaces they meet.

Waterjets are the safest choice for Pilot Boat applications. Our waterjets are engineered with safety in mind, precise steering control and efficient manoeuvrability result in effective and quick reaction to a man-overboard situation, and with no exposed propeller, waterjets provide ultimate safety around people in the water.
Video New Pilot Boat arrives at Dublin Port
On December 1st 2019 Dublin Port received a delivery of a new Pilot Boat - DPC Tolka.
This 1,195 horsepower 17.1m Orc vessel with a 5.3m Beam & Range 150 can reach greater distances and will allow Dublin Port’s highly skilled marine pilots to board larger ships in all weathers.
DPC Tolka has allowed Dublin Port to upgrade equipment in line with customer investment in new ships and additional capacity on existing routes.
Designed by French Naval Architect Pantocarene for both fuel efficiency and performance in challenging weather conditions, DPC Tolka features the latest navigational and safety equipment on board, including a dedicated Pilot workstation in the wheelhouse and hydraulic Man Overboard Recovery Platform at the stern.
