We present recent progress on the development of a new fully nonlinear potential flow (FNPF) model for estimation of nonlinear wave-body interactions based on a stabilized unstructured spectral element method (SEM). We introduce new proof-of-concepts for forced nonlinear wave-body interaction in two spatial dimensions to establish the methodology in the SEM setting utilising dynamically adapted unstructured meshes. The numerical method behind the proposed methodology is described in some detail and numerical experiments on the forced motion of (i) surface piercing and (ii) submerged bodies are presented.
