The use of solar cell as the moving force for the ship's tour seems to be an important theme in action to create a sea transportation that is environmentally friendly as contribution of the Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) for the decrease of pollutant levels. The electrical energy produced by solar cell is not as much energy from fuels so that the solar energy powered ship that can only be followed with a limited range and speed. This type of multi hull design like catamaran that has two symmetrical hull which is possible to have an more expansive main deck, small boat boundaries and good stability. The ship deck shape is going to contribute the extension of solar panels that can be used as a generator of power needed at the time of calculation of powering the ship. The analysis of the stability of the ship carried out numerically bu using references from the IMO regulations which require minimum value stability arm at certain angles. Load cases are definitely varied in 2 (two) conditions and compared in full and light load. The goal of this research is catamaran fishing vessel that have battery, solar panel, electric motor and all of supporting solar energy moving with speed 5 knots.
