At least seven United States Navy ships have been named Alabama, after the southern state of Alabama.

  • USS Alabama (1819), a 74-gun ship of the line, laid down in 1819, though never completed as such. She was eventually launched in 1864 as the storeship USS New Hampshire.
  • USS Alabama (1838), a sidewheel steamer transferred to the Navy in 1849 that served as a troop transport during the Mexican–American War.
  • USS Alabama (SP-1052), a 69-foot motor boat inspected by the Navy in the summer of 1917 and assigned the designation SP-1052.
  • USS Alabama was the French title for the film Crimson Tide, which was set on the eponymous submarine.
