- Ship : Vessel larger than a boat for transporting people, goods, or defence by sea, and capable of crossing open waters.
- CODOG : Combined Diesel Or Gas marine propulsion system, in which either the diesel or the gas turbine connects to the propellers
- CODAG : Combined Diesel And Gas marine propulsion system, in which either a diesel, a gas turbine, or both connect to the propeller
- CODLAG : Combined Diesel-electric and gas marine propulsion system, in which the diesel drives a generator that powers an electric motor that turns the propeller at low speed, but a gas turbine can be added mechanically for bursts of power
- CODAD : Combined Diesel and Diesel marine propulsion system, a method that uses one diesel for low speed and two for high speed; characterized by high fuel efficiency and long endurance
- COSAG : Combined steam and gas marine propulsion system, while an obsolete method, uses a boiler-powered steam turbine for low speed
- COGOG : Combined gas or gas marine propulsion system, a system that uses two gas turbines, one optimized for low and one for high speed, but only one at a time
- COGAG : Combined gas and gas marine propulsion system, like COGOG in that it has two types of gas turbines, but both can simultaneously contribute to the propeller
- COGAS : Combined gas and steam marine propulsion system, an experimental method primarily driven by gas turbines, but that scavenges the waste heat from the gas turbines to drive a steam turbine
- CONAS : Marine propulsion system, using a nuclear-heated steam turbine backed up with conventional steam turbines, all driving electric motors; unique to Kirov-class cruisers
- COGES : Marine propulsion system in which gas turbines drive the generators and electric motors turn the propellers, used on some cruise ships
- CODAG-WARP : Combined Diesel and Gas - Water Jet and Refined Propeller marine propulsion system
- Azipod : Add brief definition or description
