Six ships of the Royal Navy have been named HMS Indefatigable:

Other vessels[edit]

  • Indefatigable-class battlecruiser
  • Indefatigable (1799), merchant ship used to transport convicts to Australia
  • "His Majesty's armed defence ship Indefatigable", under the command of George Andrews, recaptured the Melcombe on 21 June 1804.[1] This Indefatigable appears to have been an hired armed ship that served between 1804 and 1805, though one source has her having been purchased in 1804 and sold in 1805.[2] A later source does not list her at all, neither as a purchase nor as a hired vessel.[3]
