As a part of the important thing in ship design is propeller design. Propeller its self has many kinds of the design. This study investigates the effect on the performance of ducted propeller. The investigation was carried out by solving the Navier-Stokes equations with the Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) method. These simulations were compared in accordance SHUSKIN nozzle that has 3 types of design. Each type of thruster model indicates different force and torque. Thus, for the analysis will be generated by each model and it can be discovered that which model has the most optimal for the thrust. The analysis by using CFD indicates the change of fluid flow around the ducted propeller. The results showed that the nozzle on the propeller will give the extra of thrust for the performance of propeller.
