Multi-hull ships, especially – ships with small water-plane area, are very effective as small-sized, especially fast, “capacity-carriers” i.e. vessels, which are designed for needed area of decks or inner volume, [1], for example – contemporary battle ships. Selection of type of small-sized missile ship is described in the dependence on pre-design conditions and technical solutions, including the corresponded solution tree. Two examples of examined alternatives are described more detail, including the ship with doubled achievable speed.
