A new way to research vessels
ShipIndex.org is a site created to make researching a vessel easier and more effective than it has ever been. We find valuable resources that serve as quality reference material for ships and put every mention of a vessel in that resource into our database.
- Search hundreds of resources at once
- Over a million ship citations indexed
- Once you know where your vessel is mentioned, we'll help you find that resource
- Purchase access just for yourself, or gain access for your institution
Our database was born from necessity. You can read about our background and how in his efforts to do ship research, Peter used his own experience to create a powerful new tool so that others wouldn't have to repeat his difficulty in their research. Of course it wasn't just him and his brother Mike, plenty of people helped in making this product what it is.
We have indexes from books, journals, websites and other resources included in our database. One search here and you are searching all those resources for your vessel, all at once. And when you find citations for the vessel you are looking for, we will help you find the resource they are mentioned in — either though a library or by locating it in stores.
