One of the most essential aspects of ship is its resistance. There much have been done researches to analyze the reduction of resistance in order to get a good performance; yet the multihull is still one of interesting researches to get the rightest configuration, as to produce minimum resistance. This research is experimental study to obtain the lowest resistance with configuration consisting of stagger, clearance and trim of pentamaran. The pentamaran are performing as a trimaran formation by using Wigley hull with combinations transom on main hull and non-transom on side hulls. Its purpose is also to determine the destructive effects caused by wave interference. The research test conducted on stagger (a ratio of distance of stern main hull to stern side hull to main hull length)-positioning variations of 0.35 and 0.4. As for clearance (a ration of distance centerline of main hull to centerline of side hull to main hull width)-positioning variations, they exceed 1.05; 1.20; 1.35; and 1.50. The trim variations researched are 0°; 0.5 °; and 1.0 °. The result of this study was presented by tables and graphs of resistance components of side hull on stagger-clearance and trim condition.
