Royal Navy

The Royal Navy has played an integral role in the annual Barclays Jersey Boat Show since it was first launched in 2008, with a large number of visiting vessels joining the Show over the years.

We look forward to confirming which the following Royal Navy assets to Jersey for the 2024 Boat Show. Featuring in the Military Village in Weighbridge Place and in the water this year, will be:

  • Royal Navy Dive tank, manned by divers from one of the Royal Navy’s two Fleet Squadron Area Diving Groups
  • Two Viking Personnel Armoured Vehicles, an all-terrain vehicle capable of operating anywhere in the world in temperatures from -46C to +49C
  • Regional Engagement Team and their Mobile Outreach Vehicle, and sailors from Jersey’s affiliated Warship, HMS Iron Duke, a Type 23 frigate
  • HMS Express and HMS Ranger, which are Archer Class patrol vessels (P2000’s)
  • Royal Marines Offshore Raiding Craft, a fast and versatile craft capable of transporting 12 Royal Marines Commandos at a time, getting troops to the front line, extracting them again and providing fire cover in combat situations.

Royal Navy assets are subject to change based, sometimes at short notice, on operational duties.
