The list of active ships of the Chilean Navy is a list of the ships that are currently in service in the Chilean Navy. The navy has several naval units that allow it to offer the Chilean State a naval power and an effective maritime service, to safeguard the sovereignty and territorial integrity, maintain the security of the nation and support national interests in any place.

In the tables, the different ships are grouped according to their class. The tables begin with the class of the ships and name of the ships, followed by its hull classification symbol and pennant number (No.), year of commission (Comm.), Builder (indicating the place if possible), type, displacement, and note (ship references). The ship classes (and those without a class) with the largest displacement appear first in the list, sorted by year of commissioning.

In the event that a ship has been previously used by another navy or by a private naval company, the year of original commissioning will also be taken. The spaces in the table where the information is unknown or does not exist will bear the following symbol (—).
