Humphree, based in Gothenburg on the west coast of Sweden, is a company dedicated to providing “Speed at sea” through innovative technology solutions for high performance vessels.
Founded by a team of hydrodynamicists and marine engineers, active in the field of marine high-speed propulsion and ship hydrodynamics since the early 1990’s, the company was formed in 2001 to provide cutting-edge products and services tailored to unlock the true potential of all types of fast vessels – new or existing.
An increasing number of products in Humphree’s exclusive portfolio involve innovative use of interceptors; systems for optimising vessels’ running trim, reducing pitch and roll motion, and steering alternatives to waterjet bucket deflection. Other products arise from the company’s capability to simulate the flow around high-speed hulls with appendages and to optimise shapes for minimum resistance, directional stability, suppression of cavitation or provide for favourable cavity forms. Products of this category currently include custom designed sub-cavitating stabilising fins, base-ventilated stabilising fins, and non-cavitating sea chest inlets.
