An azimuth thruster is a configuration of marine propellers placed in pods that can be rotated to any horizontal angle (azimuth), making a rudder unnecessary.
A barge is a flat-bottomed ship, built mainly for river and canal transport of heavy goods.
A cargo ship or freighter ship is any sort of ship or vessel that carries cargo, goods, and materials from one port to another.
Coastal trading vessels, also known as coasters, are shallow-hulled ships used for trade between locations on the same island or continent.
In geometry and science, a cross section is the non-empty intersection of a solid body in three-dimensional space with a plane, or the analog in higher-dimensional spaces.
A cyclorotor, cycloidal rotor, cycloidal propeller or cyclogiro, is a fluid propulsion device that converts shaft power into the acceleration of a fluid using a rotating axis perpendicular to the direction of fluid motion.
A drive shaft, driveshaft, driving shaft, propeller shaft (prop shaft), or Cardan shaft is a mechanical component for transmitting torque and rotation, usually used to connect other components of a drive train that cannot be connected directly because of distance or the need to allow for relative movement between them.
A ducted propeller, also known as a Kort nozzle, is a marine propeller fitted with a non-rotating nozzle.
A ferry is a merchant vessel used to carry passengers, and sometimes vehicles and cargo as well, across a body of water.
A fishing trawler is a commercial fishing vessel designed to operate fishing trawls.
An L-drive is a type of azimuth thruster where the electric motor is mounted vertically, removing the second bevel gear from the drivetrain.
Marine propulsion is the mechanism or system used to generate thrust to move a ship or boat across water.
A passenger ship is a merchant ship whose primary function is to carry passengers on the sea.
A patrol boat is a relatively small naval vessel generally designed for coastal defence duties.
A Platform supply vessel (often abbreviated as PSV) is a ship specially designed to supply offshore oil and gas platforms.
Propulsion means to push forward or drive an object forward.
A propulsor is a mechanical device that gives propulsion.
A rudder is a primary control surface used to steer a ship, boat, submarine, hovercraft, aircraft, or other conveyance that moves through a fluid medium (generally air or water).
A saildrive is a transmission system for a boat whose inboard engine has a horizontal output shaft.
Schottel is a manufacturer of propulsion and steering systems for ships and offshore applications.
A screw is a type of fastener, in some ways similar to a bolt (see Differentiation between bolt and screw below), typically made of metal, and characterized by a helical ridge, known as a male thread (external thread).
A sterndrive or inboard/outboard drive (I/O) is a form of marine propulsion which combines inboard power with outboard drive.
A tanker (or tank ship or tankship) is a ship designed to transport or store liquids or gases in bulk.
A transmission is a machine in a power transmission system, which provides controlled application of the power.
A tug (tugboat or towboat) is a type of vessel that maneuvers other vessels by pushing or pulling them either by direct contact or by means of a tow line.
A yacht is a watercraft used for pleasure or sports.
