Does anyone know what is happening about the next edition of this great book?
I heard a rumour (not sure where) that Ian Allen were no konger going to publish it.
It would be a great shame to lose this valuable source of material

Let's hope Allan can give us some insight.

Hi Guys

Many thanks for your continuing interest in Ocean Ships.   But for 'management changes' there would have been a new edition this Autumn, but I can confirm I have a meeting with the new MD in the next week or so, to discuss details, and the 18th edition of Ocean Ships is scheduled to be coming out Autumn 2020.


I'll keep you posted should there be any changes.

Allan
