Hobart will be commissioned in Sydney next month.

She is the first of three Hobart-class destroyers.

 

 

In 2017, Hobart successfully completed builder and acceptance trials which tested the ship’s handling, equipment and systems to ensure they conform with the design and build specifications.

The ship’s company are preparing for her commissioning, at which point she will enter the fleet as Her Majesty’s Australian Ship (HMAS) Hobart and start her in-service test and evaluation period.

This period will integrate the ship into the fleet and train Navy personnel to operate the warship in an operational environment.

When commissioned, the warship will have a company of approximately 180 personnel.

She displaces 7000 tonnes when fully loaded, is 146m long and can travel in excess of 28 knots (50km per hour).
