I discovered this book by chance, in the library on board Fred Olsen's cruise ship Balmoral.

It lists - and photographs - lots of really interesting ships that are still hanging around!  Ranging from yachts of the J-class persuasion, through various sail training ships, numerous steam boats, and etc.

Does what it says on the tin.  It aims to list everything that's historic and still available to see in some form, somewhere in the world.  Seems to be quite comprehensive.


I've ordered a second-hand one on Amazon.  £8 ($12) plus p&p..  I think it's about £35 new.  Not sure how often he updates it, but there do seem to be a few editions on sale.

My copy arrived today.  It's a third edition (1999) paperback version.  Recommended retail price stated as £35.  My copy was listed as 'used - as new' and it cost me £8.00 plus p&p.


Here's  a pic of the cover, plus a couple of sample pages.
