In 1850 the Leviathan - the world's first roll on-roll off ferry for operation in open water - entered service across the Forth estuary in Scotland. Since then, ferries have developed into one of the most important and technologically-sophisticated modern ship types, able to carry large numbers of passengers and vehicles and to discharge and load in minutes. This book tells the story of the ferry from the earliest train ferries, packet steamers and motorships to latter-day jumbo ferries, cruiseferries and the lastest ro-pax vessels.
