Packet Boats, Steamers & Paddle Steamers

List Of Packet Boats and Steamers that plied the Humber region either for local trade or further afield..

Keels, Sloops, Ketch, Schooners & Others

The 'Humber Keel' was the most common type of vessel plying the larger rivers using a large square sail for propulsion. On the smaller rivers and later the canals propulsion started with man power then horse drawn until steam power came along, but the same low draught keel without the sail or with a mast which could be lowered was used so as to navigate the river with bridges..
