This book provides a methodical approach to the appraisal of ships within their own Class and within their trade using statistical and historical data as working tools but, most importantly, recognising the intended use of the valuation.
This book is intended to give those considering entering the marine superintendency discipline an understanding of the role of the Ship Superintendent. It is intended to introduce them to the wide range of duties and responsibilities. It is also intended for those currently in this role who may be looking for different thinking and methodologies.
This book provides an insight into the work conducted by Marine Classification Societies, their purpose, regulation and the types of surveys carried out. Much of the information in this book concerns Class Societies’ rules and regulations for the building and continued operations of merchant ships, yachts, offshore platforms and special service crafts (including military vessels) and their work carried out in marine-related industries.
