Subject: Turkish Navy 1810 and 1812

To round off the discussion on the Turkish Navy here are two lists from Fevzi Kurtoğlu, ‘Yunan İstiklal Harbi ve Navarin Muharebesi’, 2 vols, Istanbul 1944.

Naval Force Table 1810 (vol 1, pp. 102-3).

Three-deckers: Selimiye, Mesudiye.
Two-deckers Mukaddeme-i Hayr, Sayyad-ı Bahri, Mukaddeme-i Ferah, Memba-i Nusret, Aslan-ı Bahri, Tevfik-nüma, Ejder-i Bahri.
Frigates: Mesken-i Gazi, Fal-i Hayr, Inayet-i Bahri, Bahr-i Amik, Tiz-i Hareket, two unnamed (known by the names of their captains).
Corvettes: Saika-bar, Id-i Nusret, Züla-kil, Şuca-i Bahri.
Gunboats: 18 unnamed (known by the names of their captains).

Vessels in Reserve at the Arsenal.

Three decker: Fethiye.
Two-deckers: Mukaddeme-i Şeraf, Tavus-ı Bahri, Pertev-i Nusret, Asar-ı Nusret, Heybet-endaz, Feyz-i Hüda, Kilid-bahir, Ziver-i Bahrî , Şehbaz-i Bahri, Nimet-i Hüda.
Frigates: Iskenderiye, Hümay-ı Zafer, Şiar-ı Nusret , Bül-heves, Süreyya.
Corvettes: Ateş-feşan, Bürc-ı Zafer, Zafer-küşa.
Brigs: Mevhibe-i Süphan, Ferah-nüma, Hidayet.

Total: 3 three-deckers, 17 two-deckers, 12 frigates, 7 corvettes, 3 brigs, 18 gunboats. The unnamed frigates might be newly built or newly purchased.

Naval Force Table 1812 (vol 1, pp. 104-5).

Three-deckers: Selimiye, Fethiye.
Two-deckers: Tavus-ı Bahri, Mukaddeme-i Hayr, Ankay-i Bahri, Mukaddeme-i Ferah, Tevfik-nüma, Sayyad-i Bahri, Mukaddeme-i Şeraf, Memba-i Nusret, Pertev-i Nusret, Ziver-i Bahri.
Frigates: Mesken-i Gazi, Inayet-i Bahri, Şiar-i Nusret, Iskenderiye, Fal-i Hayr, Süreyya, Tiz-i Hareket, Bahr-i Vesi, Bahr-i Amik.
Corvettes: Zafer-küşa, Bürc-ı Zafer.

Vessels in Reserve at the Arsenal.

Three decker: Mesudiye.
Two-deckers: Aslan-ı Bahri, Heybet-endaz, Ejder-i Bahri, Asar-ı Nusret, Feyz-i Hüda, Nimet-i Hüda, Hümay-ı Zafer.
Frigate: Bül-heves.
Corvette: Şuca-i Bahri.

Total: 3 three-deckers, 17 two-deckers, 10 frigates, 3 corvettes. Note that the classification of Hümay-ı Zafer as a ship of the line (at the end the of those in reserve) is almost certainly a mistake. A frigate of this name was launched in 1793 at Istanbul and is listed as such in the Naval Force Table for 1810.
