The Register features over 800 historic vessels, with background information on designers, builders and owners.

When you search the Register, you’ll also find their geographical location, aspects of their type or class, the eras their life has spanned, and stories which give further context to each vessel listed.

Some ARHV vessel entries feature historicised terms not used or accepted today. The Australian National Maritime Museum does not condone the use of historical language that may now be considered offensive.
