List of current ships of the United States Navy

 

List of current ships of the United States Navy

Carrier Strike Group formation sails in the Atlantic Ocean
USS Constitution under sail for the first time in 116 years on 21 July 1997.

The Military Sealift Command. Among these support ships, those denoted "USNS" are owned by the US Navy; those denoted by "MV" or "SS" are chartered.

Current ships include commissioned warships that are in active service, as well as ships that are part of Military Sealift Command, the support component and the Ready Reserve Force, that while non-commissioned, are still part of the effective force of the U.S. Navy. Future ships listed are those that are in the planning stages, or are currently under construction, from having its keel laid to fitting out and final sea trials.

There exist a number of former US Navy ships which are museum ships (not listed here), some of which may be US government-owned. One of these, the USS Constitution, a three-masted tall ship, is one of the original six frigates of the United States Navy. It is the oldest naval vessel afloat, and still retains its commission (and hence is listed here), as a special commemoration for that ship alone.
