  • Friendship (1784), a 278 ton (bm) brig built in Scarborough in 1784, that transported convicts to Botany Bay in 1788, as part of the First Fleet. She was scuttled in 1788.
  • Friendship (1793), was a three-decker merchantman launched in 1793. She made three voyages for the British East India Company (EIC).

She made a second voyage transporting convicts in 1817-18. On her way back she was broken up in 1819 at Mauritius after having been found unseaworthy.
