The “Heylige Frawe Latte ad Hammaburg” is the organization of the naval architecture students at Hamburg University of Technology.
The first IWR took place in Hannover in 1980 (hosted by H.F. Latte), which represents the beginning of a new tradition. Since then the Latte participated in every IWR with their latest developments.
Today 300 students study naval architecture at Hamburg University of Technology.
 
Imperator
Length 5,95m Imperator
Breadth 1,00m
Draft 0,45m
Weight 65kg
Topspeed 12kn
Propulsion propeller
Year 2006
     
The Imperator is the fastest boat of the Hamburg Waterbike Team. The CFD-optimzed hull has a negligibly small wave resistance, that allows outstanding performance. After some problems with the new technology of carbon fiber laminate, the Imperator showed its potential in the following competitions. The greatest success so far was being the world champion in 2007 besides several other top positions.
Paul von Lämmersieth
Length 5,9m Paul von Laemmersieth
Breadth 0,7m
Draft 0,35m
Weight 85kg
Topspeed 9kn
Propulsion propeller
Year 2000 (refit 2009)
     
Paul von Lämmersieth was the first Monohull-Waterbike built by the Heylige Frawe Latte ad Hammaburg. At the beginning it was equipped with paddle wheels, which were replaced by a propeller later on. This has obviously made Paul a successfully operating boat.
Froude Interceptor
Length 6,00m Froude Interceptor
Breadth 6,00m
Draft 0,4m
Weight 300kg
Topspeed 2,2kn
Propulsion 8 paddles
Year 1991
     
Although the keel laying of the galley Froude Interceptor doesn’t reach back in time to Caesar’s empire,  the construction in 1991 was done long time ago.
Indeed composite materials were known and steel was an established material for shipbuilding industry, but for construction of this historical boat only wood was acceptable. Only for reasons of stiffness and closeness a small amount of  glass fibre was applied.
It is not passed on how many hectare of timber had to be cleared for construction, but seven bicycle frames were needed for the propulsion train.
Clementine
Length 6,00m Clemetine
Breadth 3,00m
Draft 0,6m
Weight -
Topspeed up to 10kn
Propulsion paddle wheels
Year 1989
     
Clementine is the oldest boat of the current fleet of human powered boats from Hamburg. Despite her age she is still a serious competitor.
In the nineties Clementine was able to win the overall competition four times, not to mention the other top positions in former rankings. After several optimizations the performance and the technical reliability could be improved continually.
