Ship Index

This is just a brief and growing look at Sulzer powered ships. The vast majority of the information contained in these pages has been obtained from period technical journals and other webpages. In some cases there appears to be no English language webpage detailing the life of some of these ships, so I've tried to pull as much information as I can make sense of.

Where there are other pages that have detailed histories of these ships, a link has been provided to those webpages.

Most of the photographs contained in these pages come from publicity material created when the ships were built, or company postcards taken during the life of the ships, or from websites that permit the free exchange of photographs for use by others.

The numbers of ships that were powered by Sulzer engines are huge - hopefully these pages will prove of interest, for the famous well-known vessels and for those that travelled through history almost un-noticed.
