Aert Jansse van Nes (1626 – 13 or 14 September 1693) was a 17th-century Dutch naval commander, notable for commanding the second squadron in the raid on the Medway in 1667.

He was born at Rotterdam. Three modern ships of the Royal Netherlands Navy have been named after him - a destroyer in 1931, a frigate in 1966 and a multipurpose frigate (F833) in 1992.
