Ship Data Resources

A number of resources exist for researching individual vessels, or a class of vessels. Many naval architects/naval architecture firms maintain a private list, both of their own designs and of relevant others.


Public (online) Databases

  • xVAS [1] (Can be acccessed through [2])

Private Databases

  • Clarkson's Register [3]

Published Works


  • If available, Googling [5] the IMO number often returns hits.
  • Fleet operators often list vessel details on their webpages.
  • Trade magazines often publish particulars and general arrangements when announcing new builds.
  • Unknown copyright status of most images, however a good resource: Shipbuilding Picture Dictionary [6]
