IRON, STEEL & COMPOSITE SQUARE-RIGGED SAILING VESSELS REGISTERED AT SYDNEY

I am currently undertaking a private research project to list all the world’s iron, steel and composite square-rigged sailing vessels, both past and present. So far, the list contains over 4300 such vessels.

The following list identifies 45 such vessels that were at one time registered at Sydney, Australia. Of these, 3 presently survive:- James Craig, Polly Woodside and Bounty.

I am always interested to learn more about these and other iron, steel or composites square-rigged sailing vessels. If you have any queries, comments or information regarding these vessels, please email me (Mori Flapan) on mflapan@hotmail.com
