Four vessels of the Royal Navy have borne the name HMS Bold.
- HMS Bold, an Archer-class gun-brig of 14 guns built by Perry & Wells, at Blackwall Yard in 1801. She ran aground near Yarmouth, Isle of Wight in a gale on 6 January 1811 and was broken up in April.
- HMS Bold, a 12-gun Bold-class gun-brig built at Bursledon in 1812. On the morning of 27 September 1813 a strong current drove her on shore near the north end of Prince Edward Island and she was wrecked, but the crew was saved.
- HMS Bold, the ex-HMS Manly, which had just been recaptured from the Danes. A new HMS Manly having just been commissioned, and a HMS Bold just having been lost, the Admiralty recycled the name. She was sold on 11 August 1814.
- HMS Bold, a tug built for the U.S. Navy as Bold (BAT-8) along the lines of American ATRs; was transferred to the United Kingdom on 29 June 1942; returned to the U.S. Navy in January 1946 at Subic Bay; sold 1948.
