Powerboat Routing calculates your route to avoid rough seas, strong winds, land and shallow water to ensure a safe, comfortable and fuel efficient passage.
Know exactly what the conditions will be with key metrics like roll, vertical acceleration, and boat slamming along the entire length of your journey.
Our new powerboat algorithm performs billions of calculations to factor in wind and wave drag, and the world's most comprehensive ocean and tidal currents, to find your optimal route.
Enter your boat dimensions to activate advanced wave modelling. This feature uses 3D hydrodynamic modelling to calculate how your individual hull shape will interact with the forecasted wind and wave conditions. This data is then included in your route calculations, resulting in the most accurate Weather Routing tool on earth.
See roll, vertical acceleration and slamming incidence data along your entire route. Only available on Professional accounts.
See the average, maximum, and minimum wind speeds, wave height, direction and period, ocean currents, cape and rain that you’ll encounter on your route. Also view extreme weather warnings if conditions are unsafe for sailing.
The ocean surface can be affected by different wind waves and swells of varying sizes and directions. We calculate the above safety metrics using primary, secondary, tertiary swell, and wind wave data. These can be viewed as a combined output, or dig deeper to look at each swell layer individually.
For longer routes Power Routing uses the ECMWF Ensemble Forecast. This is currently the world’s most accurate long range forecast and will let you plan your trip well in advance, with better accuracy than traditional climate forecasts.
Our cloud-based Power Routing accesses high resolution forecast data without needing to download it. We calculate your route, send it back to you on the boat and you’re away!
