COMMERCIAL SAILING VESSELS--AN ECONOMIC ASSESSMENT. A COMPARATIVE STUDY OF COSTS FINDS THEM LESS ATTRACTIVE

It is stated that the price of fuel would have to be more than doubled to make the most attractive sailing vessel economically viable. The study was performed on a small (15000 dwt), and a large (50000 dwt) sailing vessel and on a conventional power driven 100000 bulk carrier. Service speeds of 10, 10 and 15 knots respectively were considered. Detailed cost estimates are provided. Order from NSFI as No. 16285.
