I was wondering how many men and ships the Neo Crusaders had.

possibly 50,000-ish, considering not all Mandos were Neo Crusaders

After the recruitment of conquered folks in the second year of the war, their forces grew four fold. And all conquered folks were made into Neo-Crusaders. By that time, they had attacked the Republic. Not very likely they were only 50.000 in that time. They made up the majority of Mandalorian forces during the Mandalorian War, and they had become formidable enough to challenge the Republic.

Kandosii-type dreadnaughts carried a maximum of 40.000 troops including the crew. So it's well over that number.

Gratulator's right and if you consider that the mandalorians did a LOT of conscripting whenever they took over a planet, they always bumped the numbers of their forces by at least 4 times more then when they started the campaign. Plus you have to consider the amount of people on a planet WORTH conscripting, because no mando recruiter worth his/her salt would take the elderly and the sick to become a neocrusader.

the OP wants to know how many Mandos were Neo-Crusaders, and a lot of Mandos who joined during the campaign weren't Neo-Crusaders, meaning that Neo-Crusader numbers are most likely smaller than the other part of the Mando military was

Conquered folks were given a choice to become Mandalorians, later exclusively indoctrinated as Neo-Crusaders by Rally Masters in staging areas, or be slaves in their war forges to make ships, armour, weapons and war droids, which I would think the sick and elderly would be placed in. In the Kotor campaign guide, it's stated that the Neos outnumber the old Crusaders by the end of the war.

What Gratular wrote. And 50.000 is just a ridiculously small number, hardly enough to crew even a single large capital ship. Even at the start of the Mandalorian wars when the Neo-Crusaders acted more as an elite vanguard, their numbers must have been in the hundreds of thousands considering every Mandalorian unit had some Neo-Crusaders.
As the war progressed the Mandalorians were able to challenge the Republic and even win until Revan joined in with his jedi, so the number must have grown well into the millions unless the Mandalorians had a truly enormous technological advantage both on the ground and with their ships in space, which I don't think they had.
