In this section you will find, amongst others, an almost complete listing of all ships serving the Royal Danish/Norwegian Navy from 1801-1814 and the Royal Danish Navy (RDN) from 1814 to the present day.

The Fleet Lists gives you a complete survey of all known named ships in this period; however a number of unnamed ships and vessels, Canon Jollies, Cannon Shallops etc. are not incorporated into this first edition.

Later on, I will try to incorporate specifications of all known ships during this period, including photos or drawings, details and history of every ship.
