Floating breakwaters are inventoried. The various types are separated into 4 general categories, which are Box, Pontoon, Mat, and Tethered Float. The Tethered Float was identified as a special category but lacked sufficient prototype experience for detailed analysis. Advantages and disadvantages of the Box, Pontoon and Mat are presented.
