List of oldest surviving ships

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search
The Pesse canoe is the world's oldest known ship, dating between 8040 and 7510 BC.

This is a list of the oldest ships in the world which have survived to this day with exceptions to certain categories. The ships on this list which include warships, yachts, tall ships, and vessels recovered during archaeological excavations all date to 1918 or prior. Vessels listed are sorted by date of launching as most accurately known. Many of the ships in the "Build location" column were built for use in other countries by the United Kingdom, which in the mid to late 1800s was a dominant worldwide ship builder. A majority of ships on this list are found in museums, and include examples that are the last of their kind left in the world.

List criteria[edit]

While this list includes the "oldest surviving" ships, many have since been restored, and/or reconstructed. Ships that have been exposed to the elements gradually deteriorate over time, thus no ship can be considered truly original due to part replacements during a ship's career. This can become a known dilemma called "Ship of Theseus", where there is a blurred line on the definition of "original".[1] An example is the USS Niagara; the original sank in 1820 and was raised and reconstructed three times.[2] The result of these extensive reconstruction attempts left little of the original ship remaining (nonstructural items). Another separate issue are incomplete ships due to weathering conditions caused by their status as a former shipwreck, or by sheer neglect. One example of this is the ship Mary Rose, whose raised and preserved remains consist of only a partial hull. Those that remain underwater and intact are lumped into a separate category that focuses on shipwrecks, such as those found in the Black Sea. Many surviving old ships may also appear on other Wikipedia lists such as lightvessels. Many old lightvessels survive worldwide to this day, unlike ocean liners of which there are very few pre-World War II examples.

With these things in mind, the following are excluded:

  • Reconstructed ships – "Restored" is fine as long as the ship retains its original features.[a]
  • Replicas – There is an article on ship replicas here.
  • Partially complete wreckage – All of the ships listed below include a fully intact or mostly intact hull.
  • Underwater wrecks – Lists of shipwrecks can be found here
  • Lightvessels – A worldwide list of lightvessels can be found here, the sole exception included here is the "oldest".
  • Ships made after 1918 – This is a list of "oldest" ships made up until the end of World War I.

Legend[edit]

  •   These ships have been preserved as museums
  •   Not a museum ship (commercial vessel, privately owned, et cetera)
