To better organize the vessels you want to keep track of in ShipAtlas, you can add them to a vessel list. Add as many vessels as you want to a vessel list and create as many vessel lists as you need!

How to Create a Vessel List

Steps to take:

1) In the sidebar menu, there is a section called "My Resources", from there you can access your vessel lists by clicking on the option called "Vessel Lists".

2) When the page opens, click on the blue button that says "Create a vessel list", in the upper right corner of your screen.

3) Enter the name of your vessel list, then click on "Done".

4) A new pop-up screen should appear. Start selecting vessels for your personalized list by clicking on the blue button that says "Search Vessels"

5) Start adding vessels to your new list by searching and selecting the vessels based on their IMO/MMSI vessel number OR by searching vessels by their names (click on "Search vessels" at the bottom of the pop-up).

You can also add filters to your search by clicking the "Filters" button in the search bar's upper right corner.

Note that if you want to select many vessels in a row, click on the first one, hold in "Shift" on your keyboard and then click on the last vessel.

When you are happy with your choices, click on the blue button at the button that says "Done".

6) You have now created a vessel list.

The Structure of a Vessel List

One of the first things you will notice is probably the name of your list. Below the name is displayed the number of vessels in the list, the date when the list was created, and the date of the last update on the list.

In the upper right corner, you can see four buttons. Reading from the left these are the "View in map", "Notes", "See More" and "Add Vessels" buttons.

  • Below the information about the vessel list is the list of all the vessels you have added to your list. If you click on a vessel, the app will open its vessel card.

  • Learn more information about the lists by scrolling and swiping around in your vessel list. On the right side of each vessel, you'll see a three-dotted menu. When clicking on this you can choose to delete the selected vessel from the list or move it to another list.

    When you are done making changes to your vessel list click on the arrow in the upper left corner to return to the "Vessel Lists" page and create more vessel lists!
