For more than a decade this annual volume has provided an authoritative summary of all the developments in the world's navies and their ships in the previous twelve months. It combines regional surveys with major articles on important new warships, and looks at wider issues of significance to navies such as aviation and weaponry. The contributors come from around the globe and as well as providing a balanced picture of naval developments, they interpret their significance and explain their context.

As well as its regular regional reviews, the 2024 volume focusses on three fleets: the Brazilian Navy, the Hellenic Navy and the Royal Navy. There are in-depth articles on the French Auguste Benebig class of overseas patrol vessels, the Indian P15A & P15B Kolkata/Visakhapatnam class destroyers, and the Spanish S-80 Class Isaac Peral class submarines. The third regular section of the volume is devoted to reviews of important technological developments around the world. David Hobbs looks at aspects of naval aviation and focusses on US unmanned systems. Norman Friedman outlines developments in naval propulsion systems, while Richard Scott analyses the Kongsberg/Raytheon naval strike missile.

Now firmly established as the only annual naval overview of its type in the world, The Seaforth World Naval Review is essential reading for professional and enthusiast alike. It takes the reader to the heart of contemporary maritime affairs.

' … this is a marvellous asset for those wishing to keep up to date with naval matters. Very highly recommended.' Warship World

"Yet again superbly presented with many data tables and summary boxes, splendidly illustrated throughout with many photographs and John Jordan’s excellent drawings. It is most strongly recommended."

The Naval Review

For more than a decade this annual volume has provided an authoritative summary of developments in the world’s navies.

Now firmly established The Seaforth World Naval Review is essential reading for professional and enthusiast alike and takes the reader to the heart of contemporary maritime affairs.

On reflection this highly relevant annual publication should be on the reading list of the politicians of any country with naval forces. Reading it and referring to it would save a lot of breath and enable better briefing at a high level, starting in Westminster.

Africa Ports & Ships

"This evergreen, highly relevant annual retains it's all-round value for anyone with a serious need to keep up with what's happening in the world naval scene. It is most definitely a recommended purchase for naval enthusiasts and, as ever, essential reading."

Warships International Fleet Review, January 2024

"Now in its 15th year, this series never fails to deliver. It remains the most amazingly authoritative look at the world’s navies and, as I have remarked before, if you can only afford one book to study the navies of the world, this is the book. Very highly recommended."

Peter Wykeham-Martin - Warship World
