The pictorial and aesthetic themes of this series are based on maritime vessels and the modern development of Singapore. The vignettes on the front of the Ship notes depict vessels that have plied the waters of Singapore over the centuries. The series starts with the merchant craft of bygone days, and progresses to the modern bulk carrier which is featured on the highest denomination. The series pays tribute to the contributions of merchant shipping to the development of Singapore from an entrepot trading centre to the busiest port in the world.

Benjamin Sheares Bridge
Opened in 1981, the Benjamin Sheares Bridge (Chinese: 薛尔思桥, Pinyin: Xūeěrsī Qíao; Malay: Jambatan Benjamin Sheares) is the longest bridge in Singapore, spanning 1.8 km, and the tallest, at 20 m. It is named after Dr Benjamin Henry Sheares, the second president of the Republic, who passed away four months before the bridge was opened to the public. The bridge was once part of the East Coast Parkway, but it is currently downgraded to an arterial road, Sheares Avenue. The cost of construction was S$177 million.
Built over reclaimed land by construction company Sato Kogyo, the bridge is made of pre-stressed concrete and links East Coast Parkway on the east coast to Marina Bay on the west coast.
Benjamin Sheares Bridge is the setting for the annual SAFRA Singapore Bay Run & Army Half Marathon (formerly the Sheares Bridge Run).
