There are about 55,000 (give or take 1-2 thousand) Merchant ships in service around the world as of today 10/10/2008. This figure includes bulk carriers, dry cargo vessels, MPP's, container vessels, tankers, LPG's, LNG's, and most cruise ships. This Figure does NOT include all the small ro/ro's that service islands (short trips/tourism) or river barges, or oil barges, or floating docks, or drill ships, service vessels, tugs, AHTS's, crew boats, restaurant vessels, etc.. Hope this helped!!! (All details given in good faith for consideration but without guarantee!)
