On March 9, 2000 Ireland issued this 30p stamp depicting the three-masted barque Jeanie Johnston, an emigrant ship constructed in Quebec, Canada in 1847.

From Wikipedia, "...Jeanie Johnston was bought by Tralee Co., Kerry-based merchants John Donovan & Sons, as a cargo vessel and traded successfully between Tralee and North America...The trading pattern was to bring emigrants from Ireland to North America, and then to bring timber back to Europe...The most passengers she ever carried was 254, from Tralee to Quebec on 17 April 1852." This number of people was approximately 6 times the number the ship was designed to transport.

Here is a set of 4 stamps Singapore issued on June 28, 2005 to commemorate the 600th anniversary of the voyages of Chinese Admiral Zheng He. The first two stamps, inscribed "1st Local" had a postal value of 23c. These two stamps were printed in both separate and se-tenant sheets.

From Wikipedia. "Zheng He was a Chinese explorer who led seven great voyages on behalf of the Chinese emperor. These voyages travelled through the South China Sea, Indian Ocean, Arabian Sea, Red Sea, and along the east coast of Africa. His seven total voyages were diplomatic, military, and trading ventures, and lasted from 1405-33."

On August 7, 2007, Ireland issued this stamp picturing an artist's conception of how the Viking longship, dubbed Skuldelev 2, would have looked in its sailing days. The ship is named after the location where it was found in Denmark. Skuldelev 2 has been somewhat reconstructed and is on display at the Viking Ship Museum in Roskilde, Denmark.

From the vikingeskibsmuseet.dk website, "Skuldelev 2 was a war machine, built to carry many warriors at high speed. With a crew of 65-70 men, it was a chieftain's ship, like those praised in ancient skaldic verse and sagas."

On December 17, 1972 Singapore issued a set of 3 "Shipping" stamps. Two of these stamps feature tall ships. One pictures a Chinese junk, and the other shows the ill-fated Maria Rickmers.

From Wikipedia, "The 'Maria Rickmers' was the second five-masted schooner in the world merchant fleet after the 'France'. " It was equipped with a steam engine. Because of this, she was regarded more as a sailing steamer than a sailing ship."

The Maria Rickmers was built in Glasgow, Scotland in 1891. In 1892, she was lost on her first return voyage from Singapore to Bremerhaven. There is speculation about her demise. Some say it was a typhoon in the Indian Ocean, and others say she was sunk by pirates.
