Hold

 

an area in the hull of a ship, between the lower deck and the bottom or second bottom.

A hold may be used for cargo, ship’s machinery, or supplies. The number of holds depends on the purpose and size of the ship. On passenger ships the length of the holds is determined by the conditions of unsinkability; for cargo ships, several classification societies regulate the number of holds depending on the length of the ship and establish a maximum length for holds. On refrigerator ships, the holds are lined on the inside with heat insulation. Cargo holds have ventilation equipment and devices for the detection and extinguishing of fires; they are usually loaded and unloaded through cargo hatches.
