I am searching for:

  • Listing of naval vessels (specifically during WWII 1939-1945 timeframe)
  • Relevant information such as name, class, country, commission/launch dates, sinking, etc

This site has some historical data in its Excel file for the United States but not everything.

There's a surprisingly comprehensive list of ships, naval equipment, and vessels for WWII at the World War II Database. You can search by type of vessel (destroyer) or by country (Germany). There is also detailed information about each vessel mentioned (such as the U.S. Casabianca submarine).

  • Hmm. That is helpful but is missing a significant percentage of ships...
