The book is divided into key 'market areas', and includes a pull-out map for area identification and easy see-at-a-glance port reference.

Useful tables of major 'turning points' around the world (such as Cape Finisterre, Cape Horn and the Dover Straits), Transatlantic distances, world time zones, and time and speed conversion tables are also included.
As well as incorporating general updates and improvements, this edition has been expanded to include distances for the Faroes, Shetlands and Orkneys. Freighter movements, cargo tonnage and cruise ship destinations have all been factored into considering details on the top ten busiest ports worldwide.
Reeds Marine Distance Tables are an invaluable reference for ship owners, operators, brokers, navigators and superyacht skippers. Using this one reference, anyone can calculate the shortest or most economical distances between all the major ports in the world.
