First published over 50 years ago, Ocean Ships has become the bible for maritime enthusiasts, providing authoritative and detailed information on all the world s ocean-going passenger and cargo ships. Ships listed in the new edition range from the greatest names in the cruise business such as Cunard s 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. This new edition will be the most comprehensive edition ever published, and includes for the first time a detailed listing of vessels scheduled to be delivered to the major companies, with IMO and builders details, enabling enthusiasts to check the progress on new ships on order. As ever, the entries are organised by shipping company with a listing of each ship owned by the company giving details of company colours, national flag, year built, tonnage, dimensions, speed, engines, number of passengers, type and former names. Around 200 new photographs illustrate the text.
