The design of stem angle is critical to the development of stem angle. In this paper, the relationship between stem angle and hull stability, wave resistance, hull resistance is investigated through computational fluid dynamics (CFD). The influence of stem angle on the static and hydrodynamic properties of the ship is analyzed. Finally, the static and hydrodynamic performance of seven cases with different stem angles are compared. Results show that: (1) the included ship bow has a higher stability, (2) in the regular head waves, there is little influence on the rolling characteristics of the hull and the swinging period, and for Fr > 1, the included ship has smaller ship stem pitching amplitude (including cycle and peak) and higher heaving peak, and for Fr < 7 the included ship has a smaller total resistance.
