In order to design the most suitable port facilities, port engineers and planners need to be able to estimate, accurately, certain of the physical characteristics of the ships which will use, or are likely to use, the facilities. Of primary importance, in this respect, are the size and overall dimensions of the vessel. This paper has two aims; first, to provide guides to each of the dimensions of dry bulk carriers which are representative of the current fleet as a whole, and second, to discuss briefly some of the main factors affecting these dimensions.
