Lloyd's Register of Yachts

What it aims to do

Lloyd`s Register of Yachts lists many of the world`s larger cruising and racing yachts. Inclusion was voluntary for owners, but nevertheless it is a very useful source of details of larger pleasure craft. It was published annually from 1878 until discontinued in 1980.

Lloyd`s Register of Yachts has similar aims to Lloyd`s Register of Ships - giving details of construction, dimensions and ownership of most pleasure craft over a certain size, plus survey and other details of classed yachts. A companion volume, Lloyd`s Register of American Yachts, provided similar detail for US and Canadian yachts from 1903 to 1977.

Subscribers could have the particulars of their yachts published in Lloyd`s Register of Yachts no matter what its size. Efforts were also made to include all sailing yachts with a sail area of at least 350 square feet and motor yachts of 27 feet and over.
