A stepped planing boat which has only one half as much drag at high speed in calm water as a conventional unstepped planing boat was developed. This boat, the dynaplane, has shallow sweptback step, a cambered main lifting surface, and an adjustable stabilizer at the stern for balance, stability, and control of trim. The procedure for designing a dynaplane boat is explained. Author
