Ports are crucial element in the export and import chains of each country. Therefore, sufficient and efficient designing of ports is of great importance to increase the safety of operations and to lower the construction costs. Their design procedure is iterative and specifications of the design ship are of the most important inputs in this regard. The design ship is characterized with its length (L), breadth (B), and draft (d). In this research a regression analysis has been carried out in the southern coasts of Iran (Persian Gulf) to obtain these specifications. The results have shown under- and over-estimations of the main dimensions. Hence, this supports the idea that it is worth performing individual regression analysis, especially in restricted waterways and in the regions with specific fleet for the sake of verification of recommended values by standard technical guidelines.
