The paper briefly traces the background and design requirements which led to the present design of the Marindus 17/17 series of multipurpose cargo vessels. It discusses some of the structural features which were incoprorated to give maximum cargo space and ease of cargo handling and describes principal items of outfit, machinery, and electrical systems. The conclusion includes a technical evaluation by the owners, who are presently operating a fleet of six vessels of the series. Principal characteristics, capacities, a general arrangement, machinery layout, and other information in interest are given in the Appendix.
