A study of the Egyptian River Nile waterway and its characteristics is made to define the constraints on the dimensions of Nile floating hotels. Factors causing heeling moments or influencing the position of the ship’s centre of gravity, thus affecting the righting moment curve, are discussed in this paper to attain a better stability analysis for Nile floating hotels. Stability of Nile floating hotels can be easily and quickly checked by use of the proposed formula for the critical
metacentric height. A mathematical model, for a specially designed computer program, which calculates the maximum sunshade area, is presented. Another proposal, for the calculation of maximum lateral projected area of Nile floating hotels, is presented. The River Nile weather conditions
are also investigated to establish a specifi ed wind speed to be used in connection with
stability calculation of Nile fl oating hotels.
