    Is there any software package that could help in assigning the seakeeping features for multihull (pentamaran is my concern here)?!

    Maxsurf can only do if for catamaran, not even a SWATH

    Plenty can, ranging from fast, highly-simplified codes (like VERES) to high-fidelity RANS CFD codes (like FINE/Marine). The applicability of the software can vary based on the exact details of your hullform and the type and quantity of the information you need to extract.

    If you share more about your project, you might be able to get more useful advice.
