Miscellaneous Commercial Power Collection

This group is composed of miscellaneous plans donations that are of any type of commercial vessel propelled by an engine, of any period or nationality, carrying passengers or cargo, ocean or costs. Fishing vessels are not included. The collection represents the work of a wide variety of designers and builders, some of whom are still in business. Most of the plans are copies, rather than originals, and many of the designs do not have complete construction plans.
