This database is a work in progress and not all-inclusive. Numbers shown in “#” column are for reference only, and may or may not be indicative of design number. Documents (drawings, specifications, correspondence and/or photographs) exist for each of the designs noted below.

Designs were numbered for identification since very often a vessel was not named until just before launching, and often more than one vessel was built from the same design.

If you can help fill in any of the missing blanks please contact us.
