Welcome to the Aberdeen Built Ships Project Website.

Use this website to search for information about any of the nearly 3,000 recorded ships built in Aberdeen since 1811 and to see what objects are held at Aberdeen Maritime Museum.

We have gathered information about these ships from the shipbuilder’s yard lists; our library of Lloyd’s Register of Shipping, from local resources and from the memories of local people associated with the shipyards of Aberdeen.

We have also digitized a large number of objects from Aberdeen Maritime Museum so that photographs, ships plans and other related material are also available to look at online.
