The shipping of the fishing boat is expensive and time-consuming, due to the long distance between the shipyard and the fishermen locations. The main objective of this study was conducted to analyze the technical and economic aspects of the traditional fishing vessel building using the modular system construction on laminated Mahogany and Teak woods. Mahogany has the potential as an alternative raw material for wooden fishing boat because it is a fast-growth plant with the harvesting period of 15 to 20 years. The technical analysis was performed by building a prototype with a modular system construction of fishing boat with laminated wood materials. Firstly, survey was conducted to get the main dimension and design the lines plan of the existing boat. The structure of modules is made using the cold press planking method. Economic analysis is done by determining the building cost of fishing vessels with laminated wood construction using a modular system and calculating the investment of a 3 GT boat with laminated wood construction. Based on the prototype of the fishing vessel that has been built, it can be concluded that the price of a Mahogany and Teak laminate ship with a modular system is IDR 44.927.656 (USD 3,160) in comparison to the general price of IDR 30,000,000 (USD 2,110). Note the less, it can be concluded that the investment in fishing shipyard for laminated wood construction using a modular system is feasible both from technical and economic aspects.
