Man has always had a calling to the sea, an urge to go out and discover what lies beyond the horizon and the vessels we built to take us there are undoubtedly responsible for shaping the world we live in. From the Santa Maria carrying Christopher Columbus to the new world, or Admiral Nelson’s HMS Victory in the battle of Trafalgar, each has had an effect in its own right.
Ships have equally been represented in our imagination, appearing throughout fictional works, ranging from the realistic to the absolutely bizarre. The team at Barrington Freight have put together a list of our favourite ships appearing throughout TV, film, video games and literature.
Take a look below and let us know which one you find the most nostalgia-inducing.
