Her Majesty's Yacht Britannia is the previous Royal Yacht of the British ruler, Queen Elizabeth II. She was the 83rd such vessel since the restoration of King Charles II in 1660. She is the second imperial yacht to endure the name, the first being the really popular dashing cutter assembled for The Prince of Wales in 1893. She is currently for all time moored as a show ship at Ocean Terminal.

The team of Royal Yachtsmen consisted of volunteers from the general administration of the Royal Navy. Officers were named for up to two years, while the "yachtsmen" were drafted as volunteers and administration could be conceded to "The Permanent Royal Yacht Service".

HMY Britannia, when on regal obligations, was escorted by a Royal Navy warship. The yacht was a customary sight at Cowes Week in promptly August and, for the most part, for the remnant of the month, was home to HM Queen Elizabeth II and her family for a yearly voyage around the islands off the west bank of Scotland there was some dispute over the sitting of the boat, with some contending that she might be better moored on the Clyde, where she was assembled, than in Edinburgh, with which the yacht had not many connections.
