    Abstract

    This paper presents a series of RANSE-based seakeeping simulations on a 17m high-speed monohull. The study is performed on the Severn Class all-weather search and rescue lifeboat, designed and operated by the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI). The Severn is a planing craft with a maximum operational speed of 25 knots, although it often operates at semi-planing and displacement speeds in different situations and weather conditions.
