The aim of the thesis is to seek the most appropriate trim sail in a fleet of ships in long voyages, resulting in fuel savings and hence reduction of ship's operating costs. It is assumed that fuel consist the largest part of the costs. One of the ways to saving fuel in ships is the option of trim optimization. For this purpose, actual data from a fleet of vessels for long-distance voyages was used. The methodology was based on these data and three scenarios of different trim sailing were created at the same time. In conclusion, the results that emerged were that the choice of trim optimization with a specific load for the respective draft and speed will save a large amount of fuel in annual base.
