Ship maneuvering implements sailor skills in maneuvering ships from a departure place to a destination safely, effectively, and efficiently. Ship maneuvers are carried out in waters, but ship maneuvers in icy waters have serious challenges and must be executed carefully. The ice-bound maneuvering procedure must consider the technique used. Besides that, the weather factor can cause obstacles in the movement. Thus, skill in ship maneuvers and accurate analysis are needed to reach a berth position in icy waters. This research aims to analyze whether there is a significant influence between ship maneuvering techniques and weather simultaneously on the ship's berthing position in ice waters. This study uses a quantitative descriptive method. The data sources were obtained through observation, the ship's bell book, and documentation, which were then processed into numbers describing the research variables. These numerical data are used in research to test hypotheses regarding the partial and simultaneous influence of ship maneuvering techniques and weather on ship berthing positions with conditions of icy waters. The study results indicate that the ship's maneuvering techniques and the weather have a significant effect partially or simultaneously on the position of the ship's berth in icy waters.
