BoatWiki - Databases


This website offers listings of documented vessels ranging from the years of 1895 through 1965. They are based on the older Merchant Vessel Publications from the Department of Commerce. These are available for download in Adobe PDF format at no charge. Although they are difficult to peruse and contain minimal information, they may be of interest to researchers and historians.


A link for these archived records can be found by visiting the above Wiki-Tags. Abstracts of title for these vessels may still be available from the National Vessel Documentation Center, although it may take some time to retrieve them from their archive storage location.
