The Submersible Hull Vessel (SHV (TM) ) concept is one where the vessel can change its own internal volume. The hull can be split from the rest of the vessel by the superstructure jacking itself up on vertical members, then the hulls can be ballasted down below the wave energy zone while keeping the superstructure above the wave tops.
The first design incorporating this concept is called the Submersible Hull Catamaran (SHC (TM)). Named the "SHC Windancer" this vessel is being designed with the offshore wind farm maintenance market in mind.

Another design is in progress for the SHC Wavedancer for offshore oil and gas usages and platform personnel crew changes.
