ABSTRACT
Multi-hull ships are growing rapidly to respond the challenge for larger load capacity yet having lower fuel
consumption. Advantages of pentamaran are the need for low power, loss of speed due to wave is lower, and
very good of seakeeping characteristics. This study aimed to determine the effect of variations in separation
and staggered of side hull II (outer side hulls) to the total resistances to get the configuration with the lowest
resistance interference. Configuration varied by adjust the separation position. Method of towing carriage
experiments are used with variations of Froude number from 0,10 to 0,70. Conclusion, the effect of side hull II
(outer side hulls) position either separation or staggered give different characteristic on resistance depend on
the value of Fr. The analysis in high range of Fr is while side hull II adjusted the closer separation, the higher
total resistance occurred. at high speed II.a (S/L = 75/200, R/L = 1/20) configuration gives favorable drag
reduction with maximum 22.65% in Fr around 0.55.
