This paper studied the maneuverability of the pure electric propulsion all-direction vector thrusting ship called "Century myth", which also is the first one of its kind in inland rivers in China. Abilities such as turning, stop, changing of course and course keeping are studied. The main research method is by test and comparison, the result shows that the maneuverability of this kind of ship is much better than traditional ships running in inland rivers currently due to its alldirection vector

This kind of ship becomes the new trend of developing environmentally friendly green ships on inland rivers both for its excellent maneuverability and reduced emissions. At the same time, the result of this trial test also provides reliable and objective data for revision and evolution of the specification for inland river ships.
