In contrast to a boat, which is typically a smaller craft, a ship is any large floating vessel capable of crossing open waters.
Originally, the term referred to sailing vessels with three or more masts; nowadays, it typically refers to a vessel with a displacement of more than 500 tons.
Regardless of their size, submersible ships are commonly referred to as boats.
Many innovations and branches of engineering are used in ship design that are also used on land, but the demands of successful and secure operation at sea necessitate the supervision of a distinct discipline.
Mega ships have become common in recent years.Oil tankers, cargo carriers, and cruise ships are among the world's biggest ships today.
These ships are called engineering landmarks and aid in the transportation of global trade.
