About us
"I saw that she was a high-class vessel, a harmonious creature in the lines of her fine body... I knew, that like some rare women, she was one of those creatures whose mere existence is enough to awaken an unselfish delight. One feels that it is good to be in the world in which she has her being." (Joseph Conrad: The Shadow-Line)

Dear Visitor,

For today Hungarian flag has virtually disappeared from world-seas. On the Danube the number of ships flowing at their sterns the red-white-green tricolour gets fewer and fewer. Hungarian shipyards with great history have closed their gates, the last vessels built there might run for few more years and then they would be scrapped up, their fates become the blow torch. We should not let the memories of these once proud ships fade away!

Association for Hungarian Shipping wishes to salute the 150 years old Hungarian shipping and shipbuilding with this homepage. In this virtual register we would like to take account of all Hungarian flagged and built river, lake and sea-going vessels. Our children and grandchildren should get to know the ships on which many rivermen and seafarer generations served and took voyages to almost every part of the world. We also would like to provide information about those ships that by virtue of excellent Hungarian engineering and professionalism had slided into water from Hungarian slip-ways and were then operated - often over their normal lifecycle - to the satisfaction not only of domestic but of foreign shipping companies, too. Moreover, our objective is to give an overview of the history of shipping companies and shipyards located in pre and post Worl War I. Hungary.

Although being constantly updated and extended the register is far from complete since material to be processed is enormous. If the ship you are looking for is not yet included please be patient. We should greatly appreciate if you could support our work with information, data or photos. Our contact address and instructions neccessary for sending or uploading images and data can be found under the "contact" button.

If you wish to know more about our Association, please visit the website, too.

Good Navigation!
