About this facility

Our 60m towing tank is suitable for evaluating hydrodynamic lift and drag components for sailing and motor craft, and incorporates a wave motor. Scale models up to two metres in length and 50kg in weight can be accommodated. The towing tank has been used to test America’s Cup racing yachts and other craft for industry leaders such as Quantum Dynamics Ltd, Seaspeed Marine Consulting and GKN Aerospace Services.
