    What are you starting off with - have you got ANY basic / simple / generic lines plan that you can use to start with?
    Once you have a lines plan, then you can create a sectional area curve, and then you can adjust it - swing it forward or aft, make it fuller or leaner - to suit your desired hull coefficients.
    Remember that container ships are usually fairly optimised for a particular speed - not too long ago some were doing almost 30 knots, but nowadays I am sure that they are all travelling much slower, as fuel costs have increased.
    So an optimised lines plan today will probably be different to what was optimum say 15 or 20 years ago.

    This might help you a bit?

    I did a bit of googling for the BSRA Standard Series and the Taylor Standard Series for ship hull forms - you could follow on with this, there should be a lot out there if you have the time and patience to try and find it.

    I totally agree with you, not to mention all the other characteristics of ships of this type. It is probably one of the hulls that has evolved the most in the last 44 years.

    thank you, but I need a lot of lines. Actually I am starting to design a container ship which can carry 2000 TEU. So, I need some lines plan.

    Is this for a college project, or do you work in a shipyard and you are planning on actually building this vessel?

    The design of a container ship is a LOT more involved than just drawing a lines plan - have you established a Statement of Requirements (SOR) as to what this vessel must be capable of achieving?
    If you have, can you list your requirements here?
    Ideally you want your Block and Prismatic and Midship section coefficients to be optimised for the size of vessel and it's intended service speed.

    You could even start with any basic lines plan for a 'typical' ship, and then start trying to modify it to suit your SOR.
    For my final year design project at college (many years ago, before CAD systems evolved - all done on a long drawing bench), I started with a sectional area curve for a fishing trawler, and then modified it to the coefficients that I desired, and developed it into a 1,000 tonne dwt sailing cargo ship.

    Just wondering - are naval architecture students today still required to do any drawing work by hand, or is it all done by computer?

    More lines than those that appear in the drawing of post # 4 ?.
    As @bajansailor says, you need an SOR, that is, many more things than the number of TEUs on your ship. Start there because otherwise it will be impossible for you to develop a project.
    No offense, but before you start developing your project, you should know what it takes to develop a project. If you need help on this issue, we can give it to you, you just need to ask for it.

    yes sir, I am a student and it is my project. I only know the number of container and speed. I have to find out pincipal particulars as well as offset.
