Maxsurf provides users with a flexible working environment for designing boat structures. Its feature pack aims to meet the requirements of both beginner and expert naval architects, trying to combine ease of use with a diverse range of modeling tools.

Every aspect of the construction is taken into consideration, from the hull shape to hydrodynamics properties and so on, enabling you to create complex watertight bodies, superstructures and deckhouses. The application allows you to design hulls, transoms, cockpits, decks, as well as specific vessel appendages, such as keels, bulbs and steering rudders.

The array of drawing tool that the application bundles enables you to experiment with different forms, surfaces and curves. The program can assess the vessel stability for a given geometry and curvature, which changes as you make modifications to the surfaces.

You can delete and duplicate surfaces, flip, rotate, align, split and join them together, all while previewing the result within the main window, from different angles and perspectives.

The dynamic surface trimming functions enable you to create elaborate surface edges and retouch difficult shape intersections, while the aligning and grouping options make it easy to manage objects.

Additionally, it comes with modules for verifying area curvatures, performing basic hydrostatic calculations, determining areas, performing parametric transformations and calculating offsets. It supports different measurement units and features color and line customization possibilities.

The intuitive interface offers fast and comfortable access to all the tools, thanks to its configurable toolbars and the comprehensible menus. The application can import data from various third party CAD and CAM programs and is compatible with multiple file formats (DXF, IGES etc.).

Maxsurf is suitable for designing any type of vessel, from small boats and yachts to large transport ships. The array of tools it comes with are there to provide you with all you need in order to generate high-quality models.
