Significant Ships

Editor:  Richard Halfhide

Significant Ships is an annual publication, describing, in one volume, the most innovative and important commercial designs of vessels 100m LOA and above delivered by shipyards during the previous year.

It includes a cross-section of ship types, with each vessel being either representative of its type or singularly significant.  Each ship receives a concise technical description and principal particulars, (including the major equipment suppliers), general arrangement plans and a colour photograph of the vessel.

Many previous participants have told us they have found it hugely beneficial to be listed in the publication. The information and visuals provided will not be reproduced anywhere else without the consent of the participants.
