Significant Small Ships - open for entries

Ship & Boat international: eNews October 2016Significant Small Ships

RINA’s annual round-up of first in class and unique vessels delivered in 2016 is currently accepting submissions for all vessels sized 5-100m

Work has commenced on this year’s edition of Significant Small Ships, profiling approximately 30 new vessels, sized between 5-100m and officially delivered in 2016 (with the exception of prototype models).

Significant Small Ships of 2016 welcomes any submissions from naval architects, boatbuilders and designers. We cover all vessel types, including RIBs, patrol / SAR craft, crew transfer boats, tugs, ferries, yachts, workboats, OSVs, research ships, pilot boats and inland/coastal vessels, among others.

We are especially on the lookout for vessels that are first in class, or that boast unique and/or special design characteristics and items of equipment. All submissions are considered and assessed on terms of merit, from the smallest to the largest within the range we cover, and multiple submissions (for instance, of three vessels produced by the same designer or yard) are allowed. All we need from you is the following:

  • A brief description of the vessel’s main design features and key attributes
  • The completion of a template ‘Technical Particulars’ form
  • A full colour photo of the vessel, on the water
  • A General Arrangement (GA) of the vessel

Our deadline for entries is December 12th 2016. If you are interested in submitting vessels, please contact the editor, Martin Conway, at or on +44(0)20 7235 4622 and we’ll be in touch with further info and the relevant forms.
