The paper presents an influence of the navigational model change on the structural and
qualitative changes of the ships groundings in international shipping. Data was analyzed
based on reports of 75 seagoing vessels in international shipping in the 2000–2014. This
study is an attempt to assess the causes of ships groundings in the new integrated navigation model.
