This paper presents a higher order time domain boundary elements method based on the Rankine sources for the computation of both linear and weakly non-linear effects for both fixed and free floating bodies. The geometry is described based on surfaces in a standard iges file, considering a NURBS (Non Uniform Rational Basis-Spline) description. The potential function, velocity, free-surface elevation and other quantities are defined using b-splines of arbitrary degree and the floating body interaction is solved using the potential acceleration approach on a Runge-Kutta scheme for time evolution. The integral equation is obtained and solved considering several possibilities for the collocation points, leading to an over-determined system. The integration over the panels is performed using a mixed desingularized-numerical method over Gaussian points. The results comparison are performed with WAMIT solution for a floating sphere concerning wave runup, body motions, velocity field, mean drift components in time domain.
