In the English language (or maybe in English-speaking cultures?) it's common to use feminine pronouns to refer to ships (and occasionally to other types of vehicles).
Are there any other languages/cultures where ships have a designated non-grammatical "natural" gender?
Obviously there could be other cases like English where the language has gender-neutral pronouns, but instead uses gendered pronouns for ships. I can also imagine there being cases where a language has grammatical gender, but ignores it for animate nouns, and ships are considered animate.
