Did you know all ships are referred to as "SHE" even though it may have a male name - you can read about why they call them 'shes' click here. We did the think the best explanation was in the comments section from Carlos Villegas who stated :
"In my sailing days it was explained to me that women carry life. Any vessel that can sustain life in an environment that people could not normally sustain life functions without her body should, appropriately, have a feminine name. Ships without a name are presumed to be cursed because they are thought to be barren"
