Air Draught

Air draught is the distance from a vessels waterline to the highest vertical projection. It is analogous to its navigational draught, however in the opposite direction. Air draught can be a major consideration if a vessels operational profile includes operational areas with bridges, tunnels, overhead wires, or boat houses. Where dictated, vessels may be fitted with low-profile funnels or wet exhausts, folding masts, and/or retractable platforms.
