We’ve added more vessel characteristic information to provide an in-depth and complete view of the maritime landscape.
Our goal is to provide intelligent, predictive vessel tracking or full maritime awareness and more accurate analytics. Take the guesswork out of decision-making and strategy planning.

Want to see what Vessel Characteristics data really looks like?
Access our free live demo and view the full-featured, extended vessel characteristics data fields for a sample of real, live vessels.
Vessel Characteristics fields are updated on a regular basis and exist within two sets:
Basic fields are available in the Standard and Premium Maritime 2.0 APIs.
Extended fields are available only in the Premium Maritime 2.0 API.
Available fields by type:
deadweight Basic field # The difference between displacement and the empty vessel # (lightweight) at any given draught tpcmi Extended field # Tons per Centimeter Immersion # how many tons are required to increase the draught by 1cm # (useful for trying to estimate the volume of cargo onboard) grossTonnage Basic field # Tonnage measure of vessels based on # the moulded volume of internal spaces netTonnage Extended field # Vessel net tonnage displacement Extended field # The amount of water (in tons) displaced by the ship liquidCubic98Percent Extended field # The liquid cubic capacity of the cargo tanks # when filled to 98% of capacity grainCubicCapacity Extended field # Cubic capacity (in cubic meters) of cargo holds # for grain (and other loose dry commodities) teu Extended field # “Twentyfoot Equivalent Unit” # (measurement of container carrying capacity) holdCount Extended field # No. of holds holdDimensions Extended field # Dimensions of holds hatchCount Extended field # No. of hatches hatchDimensions Extended field # Dimensions of hatches feu Extended field # Fortyfoot Equivalent Unit # (capacity for containers of that size) teuSurplus Extended field # Spare TEU capacity teu14t Extended field # Capacity for containers of 14 tons # (measurement of container carrying capacity) laneMeters Extended field # Lane meter capacity cars Extended field # Car carrying capacity passengers Extended field # Passenger capacity reeferCubic Extended field # Cubic Meter capacity of the refrigerated cargo space
