Model of a twin-hulled ship
Model of a twin-hulled ship designed by William Petty. William Petty (1623-1687) designed several twin-hulled ships between 1662 and 1684, Europe's first catamarans. They were able to sail closer to the wind and in shallower waters, but sailors were sceptical about the unusual design and it was not a commercial success.
