HD Compilation: 2017 Grand-Scale Ship Launches

A ship is a sizable waterborne vessel that traverses the world’s oceans and other sufficiently deeр water routes, used for transporting passengers or cargo, as well as for various specialized missions including defeпѕe, research, and fishing. Historically, a “ship” was a sailing vessel with at least three square-rigged masts and a full bowsprit.

Ships are generally distinguished from boats, based on size, shape, load capacity, and tradition..

Ships have been important contributors to human migration and commerce. They have supported the spread of colonization and the slave trade, but have also served scientific, cultural, and humanitarian needs. After the 15th century, new crops that had come from and to the Americas via the European seafarers significantly contributed to the world population growth.[1] Ship transport is responsible for the largest portion of world commerce.

As of 2016, there were more than 49,000 merchant ships, totaling almost 1.8 billion deаd weight tons. Of these 28% were oil tankers, 43% were bulk carriers, and 13% were container ships.[2] Military forces operate vessels for naval warfare and to transport and support forces ashore. As of 2016, among the world’s 104 navies, Korean People’s Navy of North Korea had the most surface vessels (967), followed by People’s Liberation агmу Navy of China (714), the United States Navy (415), Islamic Republic of Iran Navy (398), and Russian Navy (352). The top 50 navies had a median fleet of 88 surface vessels each, according to various sources
