This article studied on whether transforming from a mono-hull vessel to a trimaran surface vessel increases the stability of the vessel. Based on testing results from different levels of waves, a system of algorithm was developed to maximize the speed and stability of the vessel. Automation of the width of the tamarin with respect to the strength of the wave was made possible with a program in Arduino. The data for this particular trimaran vessel have significant value to the optimization of speed and stability and can be generalized for other in trimaran vessels. The application of transformable trimaran can save energy and protect the environment.
