► Fundamental dynamic response of moored wave energy converters in 3 degrees of freedom. ► Semi-analytical method to maximize energy extraction and ensure structural safety. ► Important to tune resonance frequencies to site-specific probabilistic wave climate. ► Mooring lines introduce additional low-frequency resonance. ► Low center of gravity and low radius of gyration minimize coupled pitch-surge motion.
