In this paper, by analyzing the forces on hydrofoil catamaran, the mathematical model of its heaving and pitching motion is proposed. Especially the lift by hydrofoil is detailed. To validate the model, a hydrofoil catamaran, HC200B, is researched by use of Matlab's Simulink Toolbox. It is shown that the model is satisfactory in comparison with the simulation results and experimental data.
