Founded in 1937 in Copenhagen, Knud E. Hansen A/S is arguably the most prominent and prolific consulting naval architects in the world. Since its establishment, the company has designed numerous merchant ships of nearly every type, but is best known for its long-standing contributions to the development of modern car ferries and cruise ships. To celebrate the 80th anniversary of Knud E. Hansen A/S, this new book examines a broad range of the vessels and ship-types devised since the 1930s. Profusely illustrated with numerous previously unpublished photographs and drawings, it is intended to give the general reader a broad overview of the development of modern merchant ship design practices.
