Abstract There is an increased number of orders for replicas of old ships that are used as tourist attractions in Croatia, which are also fully operational as well. The paper presents possibilites for application of modern CAD/CAM naval architecture software in production of old types of ships. Modern software can be used for geometry modeling and calculation of ship properties like stability, resistance and speed. The programs Maxsurf Pro, Hydromax and Hullspeed are applied to model and calculate hull properties of the replica of galleon ‘Tirena ’ that was originally built in Dubrovnik in 16 th century. The paper shows how computer programs can be relatively easily used to model hull form, but for estimation of some galleon properties these did not give satisfactory results.
