Fast patrol boats are designed for high performance in surveillance and warfare missions. In terms of hull technology development, the fast patrol boat commonly uses a V-type hull with hard chine. A duct vane is an innovation developed to improve the performance of patrol boats by combining the principles of wake-equalizing duct and hydrofoil. The objective of this paper is to investigate the hydrodynamic effect of the application of duct vane on the patrol boat hull design. The investigation was carried out using computational fluid dynamics that was validated using experiment data. The result of the duct vane application can improve the ship speed performance and reduce the total resistance by 40% at Fn 0.6. The results of this study also provide an overview of the influence of the duct vane on the lift force of a hard chine hull-type.
