The shipping industry is an important component of the global trade and economy, however in order to ensure law compliance and safety it needs to be monitored. In this paper, we present a novel Ship Type classification model that combines vessel transmitted data from the Automatic Identification System, with vessel imagery. The main components of our approach are the Faster R-CNN Deep Neural Network and a Neuro-Fuzzy system with IF-THEN rules. We evaluate our model using real world data and showcase the advantages of this combination while also compare it with other methods. Results show that our model can increase prediction scores by up to 15.4\% when compared with the next best model we considered, while also maintaining a level of explainability as opposed to common black box approaches.
