HMS Penzance is a  Sandown-class minehunter commissioned by the Royal Navy in 1998. She is named after the seaside town of Penzance in Cornwall, and is the fourth vessel to bear the name.

In 2020 HMS Penzance deployed long-term to the Persian Gulf, operating as part of 9 Mine Countermeasures Squadron from HMS Jufair in Bahrain. In this role, crews for HMS Penzance rotate every four months. [2]

In April 2021 HMS Penzance was involved in a collision with HMS Chiddingfold in Mina Salman, Bahrain, both vessels remained afloat and were able to berth safely.[3]
