The concept of manoeuvrability is very important for efficient ship operation but also in ship safety. The aim of this paper is to test and perform a comparative analysis of manoeuvrability performance of a 9000 tdw chemical/oil tanker. The comparative analysis has been performed between the results obtained based from two software’s, namely PHP and MPP, but also between the results obtained in the sea trials with the output data from MPP. In this way it will be shown the differences (if any) in terms of manoeuvrability., and if the two used platforms are effective for providing preliminary determination of performances of manoeuvrability.
