Since the environment protection take into force of shipping industry, the use of gas as fuel on ship become more popular for gas fueled ship or dual fueled ship. Indonesia government took a role to protect the environment by apply the concept of green ship to use gas as fuel on ship. Supported by Indonesia as archipelago, rules and regulations and also the government policy, the use of gas as fuel will be suitable for Indonesia. The choice of an appropriate ship type as a pioneer study, to modification or new-built, is one of important issues for the government. An Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) model is constructed to choose the ship type. The criteria’s as important factors are (A) Economy with sub-criteria’s are (A1) total cost, (A2) operational cost, (A3) feasibility, (B) policy divided into three subcriteria’s (B1) suitability to master transport plan, (B2) constrains, (B3) socio-political acceptance, and criteria (C) Technical that consist of (C1) capacity, (C2) technical feasibility, (C3) performance. The AHP model prefer to choose passenger /roro as the best ship type for gas fueled ship. The preference value for passenger/roro vessel is 39.3% followed by merchant ship 34.6% and Pioneer/ perintis with preference value 26.1%. This result can be as references for the government to conduct a further study on gas as fuel on ship to develop a proper design while the analytical hierarchy process (AHP) model represent the most suitable ship type to conduct the related study.
