NavCad is for the prediction and analysis of vessel speed and power performance. It also provides for the selection of suitable propulsion system components – engines, gears and propellers. NavCad can be used for the design and analysis of virtually any type of monohull or catamaran – from large displacement vessels to fast planing craft.
