Passenger ship with gambling facilities (model)
Cosulich Genova


This is the first project for a large passenger ship employing SWATH technology, which eliminates the pitching and rolling movement of the ship in waves up to 7 meters high. The ship is subdivided into a deck section and two submerged swimmers containing the engines. The deck and swimmers are connected by four streamlined columns, which are the only parts penetrating the ocean surface and subjected to the waves' movement.
