In this study, firstly, literature reviews were made, and the obtained data with an integrated transfer explaining the importance of the subject with respect to the demands for energy saving and emission reduction in the maritime. The recent electric ship markets have been examined in these respects. Furthermore, this study has aimed presentation of considered new design Electric Battery Sea Cab which is aware of the requirements in practical applications such as a public transportation or barge ship. The cab is 14.95 meters long and 4 meters wide. Considering the average resistance value for 16 knots speed, it has been examined that the motor to be used should provide approximately 200 HP power. Furthermore, this study’s reviewed reports and studies are stated that there is progress towards the global green ship finance market, and 28 important ports offer port-based financial incentives to green ships. Consequently, the results of this study have serviced that alternative in green ship technology information on the use of battery systems is provided. In addition, the new considered cab which represents showing that battery electrical ship can be achieved shall be interesting to the future focuses of the representatives of the maritime sector.
