Abstract: The catamaran resistance is an important hydrodynamic performance that must be studied starting with the initial design stage. In this paper, both theoretical and experimental analysis of a Danube Delta passenger catamaran resistance was developed. The method proposed by Sahoo et al. for catamaran with rounded bilge was applied to estimate the ship resistance. Experimental model tests were performed in the Towing Tank of “Dunarea de Jos†University of Galati, in order to determine the optimal distance between the hulls of the catamaran. Important differences were observed between the theoretical and experimental results.
