Two ships of the Royal Navy have borne the name HMS Duke of York, after numerous holders of the title of Duke of York (or Duke of York and Albany):

  • HMS Duke of York (1763) was a 4-gun cutter purchased in 1763 and sold in 1776
  • HMS Duke of York (17) was a King George V-class battleship launched in 1940, and broken up in 1958. The original plan was to name her HMS Anson, but she was renamed prior to launch and the name was given to the next ship in her class instead.
