Hold - as in a cargo hold.
a cargo hold
the cargo hold
On a dry cargo ship, the cargo goes in the cargo hold. On a tanker, the cargo goes into the cargo tank.

It could hold more cargo and it was much faster.
The hold of a ship is where cargo is stored on a voyage.
I believe the cargo space in ships is referred to as the 'HOLD'
The weight of the ship plus the weight of the cargo cannot be greater than the weight of the water displaced
