Comfort evaluation of mega-yachts has always been a measure of design refinement; in an increasing demand for luxurious accommodations and personalized profiles, the seakeeping performance is the unseen attribute that brings most of the comfort touch during a voyage aboard these engineering marvels. This paper is a continuation of a previous study, using the final forms of the new design inspired by the existing “Yacht A”, and represents the complete comparative seakeeping analysis related to its performances compared to the results of a class of maxi-yachts designed in Italy to operate in the Caribbean area.
