Nominations for Significant Ships

In February next year, The Royal Institution of Naval Architects will again publish another issue of Significant Ships presenting information on technically interesting ships completed and delivered during this year. This will be part of the Institution's successful series published every year since 1990, all compiled with the assistance of the staff of the Institution’s principal magazines, The Naval ArchitectSignificant Ship 2009 - page layout

Contents of the new edition will comprise information on up to 50 ships, generally commercial designs of approximately 100 metres length and over, delivered during the year by shipyards from around the world, and considered to have some key importance. The selection of ships will be based on design, technical, engineering, or special merit. Each of the vessels selected for Significant Ships includes a photograph (full colour) of the ship, followed by a concise technical description highlighting the key features, supported by a comprehensive tabular list, detailing technical data and a full page general arrangement plans. There is no charge for publishing any of this information. 

If you would like to nominate a vessel for considerations as one of the vessels featured in Significant Ships, please contact us for further details: E-mail:
