HNLMS De Zeven Provinciën (F802)

This is a list of active ships currently in service with the Royal Netherlands Navy.

Royal Netherlands Navy ship prefix[edit]

In Dutch, ships are given the prefix "Hare Majesteits" ("her majesty's", abbreviated as "Hr.Ms.") or "Zijner Majesteits" ("his majesty's", abbreviated "Zr.Ms."). In English, the Dutch prefix is translated as "HNLMS" for "Her/His Netherland Majesty's Ship". Some authors translate Hr./Zr.Ms. as "HNMS" but that abbreviation is ambiguous: the "N" might stand for "Netherlands" or "Norway". The most common way to avoid this ambiguity is to use "HNLMS" and "HNoMS" respectively.
