The outbreak of the novel coronavirus disease in 2019 (COVID-19) caused a significant public health crisis worldwide and challenged health care systems on six continents. Indonesia is a country with the 4th largest population globally, and 60% of the population is on the island of Java and the unequal health facilities that can handle the COVID-19 virus, the presence of the COVID-19 pandemic with a high spread rate can lead to a significant disaster. In this research, a catamaran hospital ship will be developed to help the handling of the COVID-19 pandemic in Indonesia to deal with areas affected by the COVID-19 virus especially in coastal areas. Catamaran has a few points of interest when compared to monohull ships. The deck range of the catamaran is more extensive than that of a monohull. The steadiness of catamaran vessels is superior to monohull vessels. Within the handle, this ship design uses a parent plan approach with reference to a comparator ship design that has cruised well. The research method applied is a numerical methods utilizing CAD and CFD software. The main dimensions of the ship obtained is Lwl = 35.5 m, B = 18.1 m, T = 2.54 m, H = 4.26 m, B1 = 3.83 m, CB = 0.698, and the maximum Vs = 21 knots with 341 kN total resistance. The main size of the ship is obtained from the minimum requirement for the deck area to be occupied by medical facilities such as those in special hospitals for handling infectious diseases. These facilities include isolation rooms for up to 25 people, treatment rooms, laboratory rooms, radiology rooms, polyclinics, pharmacies and autopsy rooms.
