The BUGARI Fast Eco Hull is a cutting-edge innovation which sets new standards in naval architecture.
The underwater hull is a completely new design minimizing the change from displacement to hydroplaning ride and optimizing the planing characteristics mainly at slow and fast cruising speeds between 20 and 25 knots.
Example: at 20 knots half load condition (80tons) the FEH consumption of BUGARI with 2 x MAN 1,800HP was measured with 15.9 ltr/nm (318 ltr/h). A conventional V-hull with shaft propulsion in the same displacement range would usually need about 21.5 ltr/nm (430 ltr/h) or more. This means that with a conventional V-hull you would need a minimum of 112 ltr/h or 35% more fuel than with the new BUGARI Fast Eco Hull.
Thanks to the new hydrodynamic geometry the BUGARI Fast Eco Hull simultaneosly provides significantly better maneuverability and length stability, even at low eco speeds between 10 and 14 knots for long range cruising.
Example: at eco speed 11 knots half load condition (80 tons) the FEH provides a consumption of about 7 ltr/nm (77 ltr/h), which means a maximum cruising range of over 1,500nm by keeping 500 ltr fuel reserve.
You will feel the BUGARI Fast Eco Hull experience when accelerating and changing from displacement to planing ride: the ship will move up but always stay in a comfortable horizontal position with practically no change in length angle.
