From Edmond Husseini
Head of Technical Office, Dubai Victory Team
“At top speed, these boats are airborne except for the propeller. A gust of wind or a surprise cross-wave could flip the boat. That’s why it’s imperative that the drivers have complete confidence in the boat’s design. SolidWorks gives us new options we wouldn’t try in 2D, so we can explore different ways to push the envelope for better performance and safety.”
In 1992, the Dubai Victory Team entered the World of Class 1 Powerboating as exhibition entries, claiming an impressive first and second in the final two rounds of the championship. Since then, the Victory Team name has gone on to become one of the most successful in the history of powerboat racing.
