    Manoeuvring in calm water and wave induced motion in open water have been major concerns over the past years. Although the importance of such theories, developed to improve the safety at sea, their analysis is constrained because of the assumptions and considerations employed. While the ship performs manoeuvres in open sea or sheltered areas, she is subjected to a large number of phenomena thus impairing the overall performance and increasing the probability of hazards and capsizes. Therefore, the conventional analysis of manoeuvring, based only on the horizontal motions, cannot be applied if a more realistic study of the ship dynamics is intended, thus it is necessary to incorporate the vertical motions. In this scope some light has been shed in the recent years to address these problems and the present work aims to present a literature review of the most promising methods up to date and the discussion of the relevant phenomena involved.
