Between 1958 and 1988, the passenger capacity of Soviet coastal ships in the Black Sea basin approximately tripled, particularly with the advent of 294-passenger Zvezda-class ships in 1985. There is a growing demand for capacity and it is planned to construct not only more 300-person passenger ships by the year 2000, but 400- person and 500-person ships of the Zvezda type, as well. The principal particulars of the existing and planned ships are given and general arrangements are shown. Operating experience with the YEVPATORIA, a ship with several years of service on the Yevpatoria to Sevastopol route, is described in relation to planned design improvements in the larger-capacity vessels under development.
