This research proposes an improved mathematical model which can be used to calculate wheel over point (WOP) for a ship's route optimisation. WOP is a marking made on the charted course to demonstrate where the ship must initiate the course alteration to guarantee that it follows the route. The advance transfer technique (ATT) was used to determine WOP. Through practical exercise, two gaps were identified in ATT. From there, an improved mathematical model, namely ATMM, were developed. A preliminary manoeuvring analysis was then carried out in this study using a ship simulator for ATMM and the existing ATT. Then, the cross-track distance produced by both methods were compared to verify the difference. It was found that the ATMM produced better result in maintaining a ship on its course. This research's mathematical model is expected to be used onboard ship and used in the Electronic Chart Display and Information System to aid navigator in making more effective course alteration.
