Written by an experienced marine engineering consultant, author and lecturer, this essential introduction and reference for students and those newly at sea will appeal to anyone involved with ship design, marine engineering, naval architecture, as well as those engaged in the day-to-day operation of ships in port.

* Accessible information on understanding and improving ship performance at your fingertips
* Ideal for marine engineering students and those studying for certificates of competency
* Covers all key aspects of ship design and performance, with exam revision one-liners
