This article discusses the design of non-propelled cutter suction dredges, with special regard to the lack of safety measures incorporated in the dredge designs. The stability of these types of dredges, including static and dynamic stability and stability in wind and waves, the hull structure, with special consideration given to the special nature of dredge operations, and the strength of the dredge, with regard to longitudinal strength and bending stresses incurred, are all discussed and described in the article.
