  • Lloyd's Register of Yachts was published annually from 1878 to1980, except during the two World Wars. They provide details of construction, dimensions and ownership of most pleasure craft. Initially, it was intended that the register should contain all sailing yachts irrespective of size. In 1948 it was decided to place a lower limit of 300 square feet of sail area or 25 ft waterline for power vessels. In 1974 the limits were increased to 350 square foot of sail area or 27 ft waterline respectively. The first volume detailed some 1,400 yachts. By 1980 the figure had risen to 12,000. The explosion in popular yachting in the 1970s meant that the Register was unable to keep all the entries up to date and in 1980 the decision was taken to cease publication.
