USS Constitution under sail for the first time in 116 years on 21 July 1997.

The United States Navy has 461 ships in both active service and the reserve fleet, with approximately 70 more in either the planning stages or under construction, according to the Naval Vessel Register and published reports, this list includes ships that are owned and leased by the U.S. Navy; ships that are formally commissioned, by way of ceremony, and non-commissioned. Ships denoted with the prefix "USS" are commissioned ships. Prior to commissioning, ships may be described as a "pre-commissioning unit" or PCU, but are officially referred to by name with no prefix.[1] US Navy support ships are often non-commissioned ships organized and operated by Military Sealift Command, among these support ships, those denoted "USNS" are owned by the US Navy.[1] Those denoted by "MV" or "SS" are chartered.

Current ships include commissioned warships that are in active service, as well as ships that are part of Military Sealift Command, the support component and the Ready Reserve Force, that while non-commissioned, are still part of the effective force of the U.S. Navy. Future ships listed are those that are in the planning stages, or are currently under construction, from having its keel laid to fitting out and final sea trials.

There exist a number of former US Navy ships which are museum ships (not listed here), some of which may be US government-owned. One of these, USS Constitution, a three-masted tall ship, is one of the original six frigates of the United States Navy. It is the oldest naval vessel afloat, and still retains its commission (and hence is listed here), as a special commemoration for that ship alone.

Planned Ships

Under construction[edit]

Note: Ships listed here may be referred to as "pre-commissioning unit" or "PCU" in various sources including US Navy webpages.[469] However, PCU is not a prefix and is not part of the vessel's title.[1] Ships listed here may be delivered to United States Navy but are not actively commissioned.

Planned ships[edit]

The following ships have been planned but are believed not to have cutted the first steel for item, hence have not reached 'under construction' status.
