Reviews of previous editions:
"...a veritable cornucopia of information for everyone involved in marine and insurance matters". - Law Librarian
"An excellent glossary of marine terms covering as it does virtually all aspects of the industry, should be a well-thumbed reference book in the shelves of every business connected with shipping."
- The Times
The international shipping industry abounds with specialist terms and jargon, including not only technical expressions but also legal, insurance and commercial terms. This volume has extensive coverage of over 20,000 terms, expressions, acronyms and abbreviations which are used in the worlds of:
- Offshore Oil and Gas
- Air Transport
It also covers every operational aspect from shipbroking to air transport thus providing the reader with a broad but very detailed reference aid.
This well-researched encyclopaedic of marine related terms, abbreviations and organisations has been comprehensively updated over the years ot reflect changes and advances in the industry, including new organisations and practices which have brought with them innumerable new definitions and acronyms.
Providing concise and authoritative explanations, the sixth edition of Eric Sullivan's Marine Encyclopaedic Dictionary will be an invaluable aid to shopowners and operators, shipbrokers, marine surveyors, lawyers and insurers. Indeed, it should be on the desks of all those involved in marine and transport related professions.
