HMCS BRAD D'OR is a 200 ton 50-60 knot hydrofoil ship designed for anti-submarine operations in the open ocean. This paper outlines the hydrodynamic principles on which this novel design has been based describes the main features of the ship and reports progress of initial trials. While her evaluation is far from complete, early results are promising and some preliminary thoughts are presented on prospects for this type of ship in both military and commercial roles.
