List of ships of the line of the Ottoman Empire

This article is about sailing "battleship" of the Ottoman Navy. For naval steam-powered battleships of the Ottoman Navy, see List of battleships of the Ottoman Empire.

This is a list of ships of the line (kalyon) of the Ottoman Empire and its vessels in North Africa during the period 1500-1859:

Algiers Province

Egypt Province

Tripolitania Province

Ships marked * are from a 1679 list of the Tripolitan fleet

Tunis Province

Ottoman Empire

In 1839, during the war with Egypt, an Ottoman admiral defected and sailed virtually the entire Ottoman fleet to Alexandria where it joined the Egyptian fleet. The Egyptian fleet sailed out to meet it, and there was a chance of a major battle until it was realized they were friendly. The ships were returned in 1840. The ships involved are marked *. Some of the later ships are probably duplicates due to poor transliteration/translation of names:
