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

Of the more than 2,500 NHLs, about 5 percent 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.
