(last two references seem to make it clear that the term isn't just used for experimental craft, future tense talks about an "experimental warp ship" suggesting exp nature needed to be clarified - > so changed the intro section)

Phoenix warp

The Phoenix, Earth's first warp-capable vessel

A warp-capable vessel or warp ship was a term used to describe any type of spacecraft that was capable of warp drive. This capability generally made the distinction between spaceships used space-faring civilizations and starships of warp-capable civilizations.

In his 2063 commencement address, Zefram Cochrane mentioned the first flight of his warp ship, the Phoenix which opened doors for all of Humanity. (ENT: "Regeneration") The term was also used by several Starfleet officers in the 22nd and 24th century describing Cochrane's "experimental warp ship". (ENT: "Future Tense"; Star Trek: First Contact)

While piloting the NX-Alpha, A.G. Robinson was eager to test the warp drive and asked NX-Control for testing the warp ship. (ENT: "First Flight")

In 2152, Esaak, an individual from the pre-warp Valakian species who was attempting to find the cure for a disease that was wiping out their species, asked Jonathan Archer for access to Earth's advance technology, stating that "With a warp-capable starship, our chances would be greatly improved [for finding a cure]." (ENT: "Dear Doctor")

The term was also used when Captain Jonathan Archer asked Kuroda Lor-ehn if he ever piloted a warp ship and when Commander Trip Tucker asked why Enterprise NX-01 had to transport the Tellarite ambassadors, as this species had warp ships themselves. (ENT: "Canamar", "Babel One")

In one version of history, the Krenim Imperium consisted of over 200 star systems, 900 planets, and 1000s of warp-capable vessels. (VOY: "Year of Hell")

An alien ship hulk discovered in chaotic space was determined to be "warp capable". (VOY: "The Fight")

In the 33rd century, when Craft learned that the USS Discovery had a warp-capable shuttle in its' shuttlebay, he realized that his homeworld of Alcor IV was in range. (ST: "Calypso")
