Three ships of the Royal Navy have borne the name HMS San Antonio, a foreign-language version of Saint Anthony:

  • HMS San Antonio was a 4-gun sloop, formerly a pirate ship belonging to William Kidd. She was captured in 1700 and sunk as a foundation in 1707.
  • HMS San Antonio was a 64-gun third rate captured from the Spanish in 1762 and sold in 1775.
  • HMS San Antonio was a 74-gun third rate, previously the French ship St Antoine. She was captured in 1807, and was initially planned to be sold that same year. Instead she was used as a prison ship from 1809 and a powder hulk from 1814. She was finally sold for breaking up in 1828.
