Students, professional trainees and marine engineers studying for
their certificates of competency, as well as more experienced
marine engineers on shore or at sea, will all welcome this quick to
use, comprehensive reference that brings the key information needed
to understand ship design and performance to their fingertips in
one handy volume. The book does not assume detailed theoretical
knowledge, but rather builds up the reader's understanding of how
the elements of ship design influence and impact on its
performance, and how the engineer, crew and operators can maximise
the performance of their vessel in operation.

Certificates of Competency, plus other international Maritime
Licences, such as the MMD in the US), Basic Elements of Ship Design
and Performance is an accessible, single source of guidance. It
presents key facts, backed up throughout by relevant theory,
illustrations and photographs, and also includes valuable with key
engineering data, facts and formulas, plus revision one-liners.
Written by an experienced marine engineering consultant, author and
