    A numerical tool for the optimisation of the scantlings of a ship is extended by considering production cost, weight and moment of iner tia in the objective function. A multi-criteria optimisation of a passenger ship is conducted to illustrate the analysis process. Pareto frontiers are obtained and results are verified with Bureau Veritas rules.
