Currently, the catches of fishing vessels supplies the daily food needs and sustains the food security of millions people in the world. In the field of shipping, consumption of fossil fuel is quite large, especially as fuel to drive ship-engines. The high fuel price is not at all beneficial to the shipping industry and fishermen as users of ship-engines. The use of fuel for ship-engines is not only un-economical but also not environmentally friendly. The more expensive fuel is anticipated by wind and solar energy in the form of Solar-Sail Vessels (SSV) as Fishing Vessels. This paper presents a study on the efficient use of fuel in SSV as a driver that does not utilize fuel to develop of environmentally friendly fishing vessels. There is a potential savings in the use of fuel 90% almost.
