Multi-hull ship had characteristics with complex geometry configurations. In the early stage design, multi-hull ship with proper configurations can be producing both minimum resistance and power consumption. Increasing number of hull as in pentamaran will increase frictional resistance, but total resistance can be reducing by decreasing wave making resistance with a slender hull form. With CFD tool used to examine minimum resistance with modified modelling of chine hull form on variation i.e. deadrise angles, waterline section of entrance angle and longitudinal section of stem angle. All simulations were conducted with fix separation on S/L 3/16 and Froude number up to 0.7. Comparison with the original hull form, chine hull form C35 II in deadrise 35° and angle of entrance 15° more advantageous with maximum resistance drag reduction 20.38%. The results of the study had been displayed in table and charts of chine pentamaran which having the smallest total resistance expressed in coefficient of friction and wave resistance.
