List Of Ghost Ships

A ghost ship, also known as a phantom ship, is a ship with no living crew aboard; it may be a ghostly vessel in folklore or fiction, such as the Flying Dutchman, or a real derelict found adrift with its crew missing or dead, like the Mary Celeste. The term is sometimes used for ships that have been decommissioned but not yet scrapped, such as the Clemenceau (R 98).

    Ideas, old gossip, oddments of all things,
    Strange spars of knowledge and dimmed wares of price.
    Ezra Pound (1885–1972)

    Lovers, forget your love,
    And list to the love of these,
    She a window flower,
    And he a winter breeze.

    ‘Dear Captain Smith,’ the ghost replied, ‘you’ve used me ungenteelly.
