English term or phrase: seaworthiness
Definition from The Transportation Institute:
The sufficiency of a vessel in materials construction, equipment, crew and outfit for the trade in which it is employed. Any sort of disrepair to the vessel by which the cargo may suffer -- overloading, untrained officers, etc., may constitute a vessel unseaworthy.

Example sentence(s):
  • Seaworthiness is not one thing, Seaworthiness involves the shape of the bow, the bottom of the hull up forward and down aft near the transom, the shape of the shoulders behind the bow and a whole host of other factors which range from the inner strength of the hull (often referred as the structural integrity), and the shape, size and style of outboard well on the transom. Marinews
  • Many owners prefer to alter existing designs and incorporate new ideas and machinery that should be independently assessed to minimise teething problems. However, it is important to ensure that there is compliance to all safety and seaworthiness regulations. KEILLOR ASSOCIATES
  • In order to participate in Club races, all active sailors must submit a Seaworthiness Certificate, known as a Declaration of Compliance, each year, confirming that their boat conforms to the Yachting Victoria safety regulations. Flinders Yacht Club

Σύνολο χαρακτηριστικών που καθιστούν ένα σκάφος πλόϊμο: μηχανές, εξοπλισμός, κατασκευή, επάνδρωση, καύσιμα κλπ. Αντώνυμο: αναξιοπλοϊα.

Example sentence(s):
  • "1. Πλοϊμότητα και ευστάθεια 1.1. Το σκάφος πρέπει να διατηρείται σε καλή κατάσταση πλοϊμότητας και να διαθέτει τον εξοπλισμό που απαιτείται ανάλογα με τον προορισμό και τη χρήση του." - Ναυτικό Επιμελητήριο  
  • "Σε περίπτωση που οι ζημίες αυτές μπορούν να επηρεάσουν αρνητικά την ασφάλεια ή την πλοϊμότητα του πλοίου, η απόφαση για την αναγκαιότητα και τον επείγοντα χαρακτήρα των επισκευών πρέπει να ληφθεί από τις αρχές ελέγχου του κράτους του λιμένα σε διαβούλευση με τις αρχές του κράτους νηολόγησης." - Ευρωπαϊκό Κοινοβούλι  
  • "...Εγγύηση Πλοϊμότητας (Warranty of Seawortiness), σπουδαία αρχή στη ναυτασφάλιση ..." "Η πλοϊμότητα του σκάφους δεν αφορά μόνο το σκάφος και τις μηχανές. Ένα πλοίο μπορεί να θεωρηθεί αναξιόπλοο και μόνο επειδή είναι ανεπαρκώς επανδρωμένο ... ή ο Πλοίαρχος δεν πληροί τα τυπικά προσόντα". - Διπλωματική εργ. Γ. Πα
