Concern about the increase in high-speed vessel traffic necessitates steps to bring out safety guidelines in order to regulate and improve their manoeuvrability. The stopping abilities of vessels ranging from medium speed containerships to high-speed vessels have been estimated. Assuming a straight contour track, the stopping distances have been checked against the known stopping criteria of IMO
