This paper deals with the results of investigations into the manoeuvrability and propulsion of large tankers, equipped with an advanced stern arrangement for propulsion and ship-control. Authors suggest to eliminate partly or completely the rudder, provide the ship with an extremely cigar-shaped afterbody having a shrouded propeller with a large hub-to-diameter ratio and fit both bow and stern thrusters to the ship. The application of cargo-pump-drive n latera l thrusters working on the ejector principle is discussed.
