Ship plans

The National Maritime Museum holds the largest single collection of original ship plans in the world, with one million plans dating from the early 18th century to the present day.


In response to customer demand, we have developed a special 'rolled plan' print product for our ship plans collection. Rolled plans are printed in colour, at the scale and size of the original plan, on a basic paper using affordable inks to keep costs down. Prices vary according to the dimensions of the original plans. We print directly from extremely high-resolution master files to ensure faithful reproduction of the original items.


If you'd like a rolled plan on higher quality paper or in a different format, please contact us:
