At present, the whole shipping industry is concerned about safety of navigation. In particular, attention is focused on High Speed Craft. There has been a sharp increase in numbers of this kind of vessel, which primarily carries passengers but is also known to carry goods. Some units can reach speeds of over 45 knots with capacity for 900 passengers.
