Omani Navy

Post by AvM » Mon Jun 24, 2019 10:27 pm

c 1650 Omani started to built their fleet

They reporded ´ly captured some Portuguese ships
(Muscat was taken)
Some ships were purchased from British and Dutch.
Large ships were built at Surat, including one 74 gun ship.

Perhaps somebody has any lists of 1650-1725 of Omani Navy

A Collection of Papers Relative to Ship Building in India [1840] has a list of seven ships built for the Emaum [sic] of Muscat between 1802 and 1835. ... J&pg=PA167

The Liverpool which was given to William IV as a gift was renamed HMS Imaum

Historically as Muscat was the largest city in Oman the Sultanate can appear as Oman, Muscat and Muscat and Oman depending on the source
