In ship design, especially cruise ships built for leisure activities, the concept and design of the form or style become increasingly important from the initial planning stage. Ship designs with attractive forms that appeal to people and leave an impression on them are believed to be a very important factor in future design philosophy. This is equally important in the design of merchant ships. It is believed that a renewed concept in the style design of industrial products is necessary to enrich life. Following a thorough consideration of these points, the paper establishes a method of systematic analysis of the various design information, gathered from an opinion survey conducted among a sample population about the relationship between design forms and the most attention receiving points of some ship profiles.
