The webpage listing is in six parts:

            INTRODUCTION including numbered steamers






See also Hospital Ships and Smaller Requisitioned Vessels



Although Lloyd Austriaco was the major Austro-Hungarian steamship company, there were others, the largest fleets belonging to the following lines:




D. Tripcov


Istria (Triest)

Jadran (Spalato)


Navigazione Libera Triestina



Most authorities assert that named steamships were requisitioned by the Navy and numbered steamships were requisitioned by the Army.There are too many exceptions to this for it to be a reliable rule, and the explanation of René Greger (1976) and Wladimir Aichelburg (1988) is more plausible: those steamships whose requisition had been planned before war started were numbered while subsequent requisitions resulted in the name of the steamship being retained.Not all the planned requisitions were possible because, for example, the ship was not in the Adriatic at the outbreak of war.See SS Izvor below.Aichelburg (1988) gives details of mobilisation plan of 01 April 1914 which seems to confirm Gregor’s theory.

Almost a hundred merchant ships spent the duration of the war in the safety of a basin to the north of Sebenico, variously called Lago di Scardone and Prokljansee (Lake Prokljan).  It forms the tidal estuary of the River Krka.Smaller numbers spent the duration in Novigrad Basins, Triest, Fiume and Baccari.

Not included in this survey are dredgers, launches (other than steam launches), lighters andsailing vessels (whether motorised or not) such as trabakels.

In cases where a vessel was requisitioned twice, under different circumstances, she is listed under both categories below.
