Economics of ship design

  • Alan E. Branch

Abstract

This chapter outlines the basic factors likely to influence the design of a modern vessel compatible with the market needs of the 1990s and beyond. It is not a technical assessment but primarily an evaluation of the economic and related factors relevant to efficient ship design; it should be read in conjunction with Chapter 4, which deals with ship investment criteria.
