United States Standard Merchant Ships in World War II

Maritime Commission, 1937-1945

This portion of the Shipscribe web site contains five tables containing data on all the contracts let for construction of standard-design merchant ship during World War II by the United States Maritime Commission. Five of the tables contain the same data, the difference being in the way they are sorted. These tables are not particularly web friendly, being wider than some computer monitors, but you can view all the data by using the scroll bars on your browser. The sixth and last table lists the Maritime Commission ship designs with very brief specifications and notes.
