In the multicriteria approach based on the evolutionary SPEA algorithm one is able to consider a few constrained criteria simultaneously. The approach applied for a ship with hybrid propulsions has already been presented by one of the authors on previous TransNav?2009. This time a motor-driven version of the solution is presented. The paper is focused especially on a proposal of ship safety measure, based on restricting the impact of weather hazards on the ship. Besides the weather conditions and navigational restraint the safety of a vessel is one of more important factors to be considered. The new approach towards a safety factor modeling is described and implemented.}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {Weather Routing, Weather Hazard Avoidance, Multicriteria Weather Routing, Weather Condition, SPEA Algorithm, Hybrid Propulsions, Motor-Driven Ship, Ship Safety Measure} }
