This book presents the proceedings of the 13th International Symposium on High Speed Marine Vehicles, held from 23 to 25 October 2023.
The High Speed Marine Vehicles Conference has more than 30 years history since the first Conference held in Naples in 1991. Since then, it has been an opportunity to present and discuss developments in the design, construction and operation of high speed marine vessels.
The Symposium is addressed to academics, research organizations, industry, government agencies, certifying authorities as well as to designers, operators and owners who contribute to improved knowledge about the high speed vessel. For the present edition, more than 40 abstracts have been submitted and, after a review process, 27 papers have been included in this book.
Thanks are due to the Scientific Committee who shouldered most of the responsibility for reviewing papers and providing constructive comments to improve their quality.
My personal thanks to Professor Antonio Fiorentino, founder and Chairman of HSMV, for sharing his invaluable knowledge and experience and inviting me in this role.
