Basiliscus will be a cruising hydrofoil sailboat, much along the lines of David Keiper's Williwaw, but incorporating experience that has been gained in multihull design in the thirty years since Williwaw's construction. This paper covers the development plan for the entire project and the technical results of design studies performed to date.

Topics covered include scaling laws for model hydrofoils, the baseline design, and preliminary CFD modeling of the hydrofoils.
