HMS Sea Nymph was an S class submarine of the Royal Navy, and part of the Third Group built of that class. She was built by Cammell Laird and launched on July 29, 1942.

She spent most of the Second World War in home waters off the Scandinavian Coast, where she made a number of unsuccessful attacks on enemy shipping, including the German submarine U-592, the Norwegian merchant Jupiter and the German merchant Levante. All torpedoes fired missed their targets.

Sea Nymph survived the war and was eventually sold. She arrived at Troon in June 1948 for breaking up.[1]
