The amount of water displaced by a ship is equal to it's weight which gives a upward force to ship by which it floats on water. On the other side the amount of water displaced by a piece of iron is less than it's weight and it's upward force is also small. Hence a ship floats on water where as a piece of iron doesn't float.
