Description: The United Kingdom is fortunate in possessing a magnificent collection of historic ships and boats, distributed widely throughout these islands, reflecting our rich maritime history and the many innovations in marine technology and design that have been produced here over
the past few centuries.
These fine old vessels are a difficult cultural resource to manage because they are built of perishable materials and often operate in a harsh, destructive environment. The first step in establishing a sound management policy is to find out the extent of the resource; that is, how
many historic ships there are, where they are based and in what condition they are to be found. We have an excellent foundation on which to
work in the form of the National Register of Historic Vessels (NRHV) which was set up over a decade ago by the former National
Historic Ships Committee (NHSC). This Register includes data on British built vessels over 40ft in length, over fifty years old, which are based in the UK and are substantially intact (i.e. not degraded archaeological deposits). It contains details of many hundreds of ships and
boats, some privately owned, others owned and managed by charitable trusts or museums.
