Class Naming Practice/s & Peculiarities[edit]

Ship Model Variants: The specific safari ship design presented here (Animal class Safari Ship or Leaping Snowcat class Safari Ship) has been used for several other purposes or missions, either through conversion of existing safari ships, or through deliberate variants produced by the shipyard. These variants include yachts, Scout Service exploratory or survey vessels, passenger carrying liners, and free traders. That particular model has proven unsuccessful in commercial service due to its limited capacity for cargo. [3]
