Earliest records regarding sea transport activity to call the transport of goods to trade; the evidence of history and archeology proves that this activity was widespread in the early 1SM century. 

The desire to operate the trade for longer distances and at more seasons motivate improvements in ship design during the Middle Ages before the 19th century, piracy cases resulted in ships should be armed, sometimes with heavy, as in the case of the Manila galleons and East Indiamen.

Piracy is still common in the seas around Asia, especially in the Malacca Strait. In 2004, the governments of the countries bordering the straits, such as Singapore, Indonesia and Malaysia agreed to give more protection to the ships passing through the waterway. 

5. Oil tanker ship
Tanker is a ship designed to transport oil or its derivatives. The main types of tankers, including oil tankers, chemical tankers and LNG carriers. Among the various types of tankers, supertankers are designed for transporting oil around the Horn of Africa and the Middle East. Knock Nevis supertanker is the largest carrier in the world.
Oil tanker ship
Addition to transporting pipelines, tankers are also vehicles for transporting crude oil, which can sometimes lead to disastrous environmental consequences of the oil spill into the sea. For the famous catastrophe caused by tankers, see Torrey Canyon, Exxon Valdez, Amoco Cadiz, Erika, Prestige.

Grouping of tankers by capacity:
- ULCC (Ultra Large Crude Carrier), with a capacity of 500,000 tons
- VLCC (Very Large Crude Carrier / Malaccamax), capacity 300.000ton
- Suezmax, which can traverse the Suez Canal under full load, the capacity of 125000-200000 tons
- Aframax (Average Freight Rate Assessment) 80000-125000 ton capacity
- Panamax, which can cross the door on the canal Panamá, with a capacity of 50000-79000 tons.

6. Tugboat
Tugs are vessels that can be used to maneuver / movement, the main pull or push other ships in the harbor, the open sea or by river or canal. Similarly tugboat used to pull barges, broken, and other equipment.
Tugboat
Tugs have great power when compared to its size. Tugs ancient times using a steam engine, currently uses a diesel engine. Parent engine-powered tugs are usually between 750 to 3000 horsepower (500 kW s.d. 2000), but the larger boat (used on the high seas) can be powered up to 25 000 horsepower (20 000 kW). Most machines that are used together with a railway engine, but in moving the ship propeller and for safety is usually used for a minimum of two aircraft engines.

Tugboat has high maneuverability, depending on the drive unit. Delay ships with conventional propulsion has a propeller at the rear, efficient to pull the boat from the port to other ports. Other movers type often called Schottel propulsion system (azimuth thruster / Z-Peller) in which the propeller under the ship can move 360 ​​° or Voith-Schneider propulsion system that uses such a knife under the ship to make the vessel rotates 360 °.

Type tugs:
- Conventional tugs / or Pusher Tug Towing
- Tugs multipurpose / Utility Tug
- Harbour Tug

7. Container ship 
Container ship is a ship that is specifically used to transport standard containers hauled aboard at the container terminal by using a special faucet, which can be done quickly.

Dredger ship
There are several types of dredgers include: 
Trailing suction hopper dredger; A trailing suction hopper dredger or TSHD drag suction pipe when working, and the filling material is sucked into one or multiple containers inside the vessel.
