Monk's semi-displacement hull form is happy throughout its range of speed from idle to maximum. We had modest chop (3 feet, maybe), but experience tells me the yacht's fine entry will easily part the waves, and her chine's rise in the forward third of the hull will suppress spray. When the seas are big, this chine will bury and damp pitching. This, combined with substantial flare in the bow sections, will keep the decks dry and the motion kind to the crew. Her straight run and parallel buttock lines let her run cleanly at a speed/length ratio of more than the pure displacement ratio of 1.34.
