Online registers

The Miramar Ship Index  Based in Wellington, New Zealand, this is an historical database listing both merchant powered ships of about 100 gross register tons and above and naval ships of even smaller tonnage displacement; and also composite, iron & steel sailing ships. Access to the website is subject to registration and a US$20 annual subscription fee. However a free 7-day trial is available.

Equasis aims at collecting and disseminating quality and safety-related information on the world's merchant fleet provided to it by holders of such information. It displays information from public authorities and industry organisations. Ship characteristics and ship management information are the two main parts of a ship record.
