Synopses & Reviews
First published almost fifty years ago, Ocean Ships has become the bible for maritime enthusiasts, providing authoritative and detailed information on all the worlds ocean-going passenger and cargo ships. The total number of ships in the last edition (published in 2009) was over 5,000 and such has been the boom in ship building in recent years. Ships listed in the new edition range from the greatest names in the cruise business such as Cunards Queen Mary 2 and the Queen Victoria, to the multitude of unglamorous workhorses of the seas—tankers, container ships, and cargo vessels owned by companies across the globe. The new edition is fully revised, with entries organized by shipping company with a listing of each ship owned by the company giving details of company colors, national flag, year built, tonnage, dimensions, speed, engines, number of passengers, type and former names, supplemented with a new photographic section of around 200 new photographs.
