University of Southampton

We are delighted to have worked with two ship science students from the University of Southampton, under the tutorship of Professor Phillip Wilson, Professor of Ship Dynamics.

Both students completed their 3rd year Ship Science in 2013 and carried out their individual research projects on Boleh.

  • Jonathan Happs carried out his research on Boleh’s Sail and Rig and;
  • Matthew Slater completed research on Resistance, Propulsion and Stability of Sail Training Vessel, Boleh.


Their completed research papers are available to read on the students pages.

Professor Philip Wilson said "The University of Southampton is delighted to be involved with the Boleh Project. It has allowed part 3 Ship Science students to contribute substantial work on their own part that is directly useful for the restoration and future operation of Boleh. I look forward to continued involvement in the ultimate goal of sailing Boleh."
