The Motor Ship collection

Motor Ship

Motor Ship


The Motorship is written for technical directors, managers and superintendents in ship owning and ship technical management companies as well as for readers in shipbuilding, consultancy, ship design, and naval architecture firms and is also widely read by marine engineer officers aboard merchant vessels. It concentrates on the ship itself, and its machinery and equipment, covering all types of deep-sea merchant and short-sea vessels in revenue-earning merchant service, and aims to cover new developments in the worldwide shipbuilding and ship machinery industry, with an emphasis on ship propulsion. Our collection of Motor Ship is fairly complete from 1987 to early 1999, with some earlier issues; donations would be greatly appreciated.
