Our skills

HMS Charger is a fast inshore patrol craft primarily focused in coastal waters but equally at ease in riverine or offshore areas. Our high speed, endurance and ability to resupply in the smallest of harbours make us a versatile asset for the Royal Navy, capable of repositioning around the United Kingdom or abroad at short notice.

All about HMS Charger

The reforming of the ‘Coastal Forces Squadron’ has ushered in a new era of operational focus for the P2000 fleet. While support to University Royal Navy Units is still supported when possible, as is navigational training, our focus is on the delivery of operational effect.

HMS CHARGER and her Ship’s Company pride ourselves on versatility, projecting effect which punches above our weight, and extending our range to wherever we are required.
