The present dictionary is designed to serve as an excellent and very useful reference to the nautical terminology including names and parts, terms and expressions of and related to the sea and ships. It should be noted that the content of the book does not include names of people and specific vessels, types of ships and actual events.

Furthermore, taking into account the size and usefulness matters, the author of the dictionary has not included more archaic and technical terms, naval gunnery and theory of navigation, and some other areas. Each entry in the dictionary has been presented in a self-explanatory way to make using the book easier.

Please also note that even though this is a sort of technical work, it is not necessary for the user of the dictionary to refer to some further entries to understand any one entry. In short, this is one of the best dictionaries of the nautical terms available today and maybe one of the most useful publications.

All entries have been listed in strict alphabetical order; the entries that are cross-references will appear in brackets behind ones to which they are referred. We particularly recommend this dictionary to the students and all people with the interest in sea, ships, their construction and work, and all relevant areas.
