Search Tips - IMO/LR Number
You can search SeapixOnline by Lloyds Register or IMO number. Lloyds Register numbers were allocated in the late 1960s and in the late 1980s the same set of numbers evolved into the (International Maritime Organisation) IMO number. Unique IMO numbers are issed to propelled sea-going merchant ships over 100 gt. There are many vessels without IMO numbers - fishing vessels, warships, unpowered vessels. Wherever possible, SeapixOnline contains the IMO number for a vessel.
