This chapter overviews the prominent growth of shipbuilding industries along the East China Sea coasts, which facilitated the expansion of a regional maritime network in the Song Dynasty onwards. Comparing to the structure of two Chinese traders with v-shaped cross section described in previous chapters, the archaeological data of several ships excavated in different places in Chinese coasts illustrates the existence of the second type of East China Sea ship—the hull show the U-shape in cross section and have single-layered hull planking. Constructing this type became standard probably in the 14th century onwards, and the synergetic impact of the standardization resulted in the emergence of the new trading systems, such as the Ryukyu’s Involvement in the East Asian maritime trades.

Keywords:   East China Sea shipbuilding tradition, Penglai, Ningpo, Ryuku, tribute system, East Asian maritime trading network
