A1 (shipping)

In shipping, the designation A1 is a symbol used to denote quality of construction and material.[1] In the various shipping registers ships are classed and given a rating after an official examination, and assigned a classification mark, which appears in addition to other particulars in those shipping registers after the name of the ship.
