Lloyd`s Register of Ships today

Current editions of Lloyd`s Register of Ships provide similar information to the volumes for the 1930s but give more detail, including:

  • Lloyd`s Register number: a unique number, unchanged from one edition to another. Also known as the IMO number because these numbers are used by the International Maritime Organization.
  • satellite communications equipment
  • deadweight [definition] tonnage
  • type of vessel: e.g. general cargo, tug, tanker
  • yard number
  • cargo facilities:
    • derricks [definition], cranes and winches for loading and unloading
    • number of containers carried
    • roll-on, roll-off capabilities, i.e. whether vehicles can drive on
    • number and lengths of holds for cargo
    • dimensions of hatches
    • various cargo capacities including insulated space
    • number of passengers
    • additional details of machinery, including:
      • type of diesel engine (e.g. MAN, Sulzer)
      • power output in kiloWatts (kW) and brake horsepower [definition] (bhp)
      • generators   

Recent editions have a card listing these column headings, to be used alongside the register. The cards are printed in different languages (English is on a white card, French on a green card) and stored in the register`s front pocket.
