This paper describes the concept design of a high-speed trimaran roll-on/roll-off (RO/RO) designed for commercial cargo but readily convertible to military use. It is designed for a coastal express service, such as Port Canaveral, Florida, to Wilmington, Delaware, so the emphasis is on speed, simplicity, and reliability. All the RO/RO cargo is carried on the main deck, and there is room for a limited number of passengers to accompany their cargos.
