Welcome to Three Decks

Hello and welcome to the world of sailing navies

Over the last few years Three Decks has grown to become the premier web resource for researching naval history during the Age of Sail. Three Decks features detailed information on vessels, crew, shipyards, dockyards, naval actions, geographical locations and much, much more including background details on the ranks, appointments and the nations involved. Even the National Maritime Museum links to us (VERY proud of that one).
