Uncertainty Quantication (UQ) for CFD-based ship design can require a large number of simulations, resulting in signicant overall computational cost. Presently, we use an existing method, multi-delity Kriging, to reduce the number of simulations required for the UQ analysis of the performance of a sailing yacht hull, considering uncertainties in the tank blockage, mass and centre of gravity. We compare the UQ results with experimental values.
