This is a list of Royal Yachts of the United Kingdom.

There have been 84 Royal Yachts since the restoration of King Charles II in 1660. Charles II himself had 25 Royal Yachts and five were simultaneously in service in 1831. Occasionally merchantmen or warships have been chartered or assigned for special duty as a temporary Royal Yacht, for example the steamship Ophir in 1901 and the battleship HMS Vanguard in 1947. There is no current British Royal Yacht.
