Abstract: Fuel savings are closely related to ship resistance. Research on reducing resistance continues to be done in various ways, ranging from hull modification, optimization of the propulsion system and the addition of polymer substances. Resistance are also influenced by ship’s velocity and variations of inter-demihulls length. This challenge has been widely discussed by experts, especially the variety of inter-demihull length. This research aims to analyze the 30 GT catamaran fishing boat resistance with variations in hull type and inter-demihull length. The main aim is to get the obstacle characteristics of these variations. The advantage of this research lies in the more varied shapes and inter-demihull lengths of each model where the characteristics of the obstacles will also vary, so that this research can later be an alternative for the community in the use of catamarans to increase fishing productivity. The study was conducted using CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics). From the results, one of the most optimal form of the model is the type of hull Symmetrical Hard Chine with a variation of S / L 0.5 at maximum speed.Tthis model has a wave resistance value of 9.87 kN, a viscous resistance of 5.04 kN, and a total resistance value of 14.92 kN. Where there is a reduction of the wave resistance of 12.1%, viscous resistance of 1.5%, and a total resistance of 8.779% from the original model. Another advantage of this type for the Purseseine Boat is the use of a fairly wide deck for the laying of fishing gear.
