Today a lot of coastal countries need for sea transportation of passengers and small lots of very diverse cargos. The problem is more complete one, if the corresponded harbors have sufficiently restricted depth. Selection of the optimal ship type for needed cargos and conditions of exploitation. Two new concepts of universal shallow-draft ships for transporting of passengers and small lots of trade cargos at short enough coastal lines are proposed.
