This is a perhaps complete list of the 133 National Historic Landmarks (NHLs) in the United States that are ships, shipwrecks, or shipyards.[1]

More than five percent of the 2,442 or so NHLs are ships, shipwrecks, or shipyards.

The NHL ships, shipwrecks, and shipyards are distributed across 31 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S.-associated state of Micronesia. Nineteen states have no ships among their NHLs.
