In the present paper, first 13 hull forms of fishing boats with different block coefficients were generated. Later, 26 hull forms of fishing boats with two different ratios of length to beam were generated by utilizing previous hull forms of fishing boats mentioned. In total, 39 fishing boats were generated. This series is called "Fishing Boats Series of ITU" (Istanbul Technical University). In this Series, the forms of the body stations and beams of the boats are the same for equal block coefficient and different lengths. The ratio of the beam of any station at any waterline to the beam of boat, B-z/B varies with respect to block coefficient, C-B. These variations have been represented with the third-degree polynomials. Thus, a hull form of the fishing boat in the desired length and block coefficient can be obtained by using these polynomials. For this purpose, a computer program called "Turetme" was developed. Finally, by using this program, three hull forms of fishing boats were obtained and presented here.
