Types of ships


Types of shipsThere are four types of ships. They are:

1. Single deck vessels: Such vessels have one continuous deck, which means easy access. These type of vessels are suitable for heavy bulk cargoes like grain, iron ore, coal etc.

2. Twin deck vessels: Such vessels have additional decks below the main deck. All the decks run the full length of the vessel. These decks are suitable for general cargo. Space is divided into separate tiers. On account of decks, the total weight of the cargo is not put on the bottom of the vessel and so risk of damage to the cargo is prevented.

3. Shelter deck vessels: Such decks have additional deck space, above the main deck. That deck provides more space for carrying lighter cargo.

4. Miscellaneous category ships: This includes Specialized vessels, Unitized cargo ships and Cellular ships. Cellular ships are designed to hold containers.
