Robert Napier Ships



Below is a list of ships built at Govan by Robert Napier and Company, Robert Napier and Sons and by those who carried on building ships under the Rober Napier name after his death in 1876. Up until 1850 the ships were built at the Govan Yard (Old Yard) at this point Robert Napier aquired the Govan East Yard (New Yard) HMS Malabar as a result ships were built simultaneously at both yards until 1858 when Robert Napier gave up the "Old Yard". Click on a ship below and you will be taken to the Clydbuilt Database for more details on selected ship including owner, tonnage, size and launch date.

Please note that this list is not a complete list of the ships built by Robert Napier at Govan, if you know of a ship that should be added please Contact Us with the details or post them on our forum. (The troopship to the right is the HMS Malabar launched by Napier at the New Yard in 1866). Click Here for more ships built in Govan.
