HMS Tamar or Tamer was a 16-gun Favourite-class sloop-of-war of the Royal Navy.

The ship was launched in Saltash in 1758 and stationed in Newfoundland from 1763 to 1777.

From 21 June 1764 to mid-1766, under Commander Patrick Mouat, she accompanied the Dolphin on a circumnavigation of the globe during which the latter's commander, Capt. Byron, took possession of and named the Falkland Islands in January 1765.[1]

The warship hosted South Carolina's royal governor, Lord William Campbell, beginning in September 1775, when increasingly-violent patriot activity drove the governor from his home on the mainland.[2] She was renamed HMS Pluto when she was converted into a fire ship in 1777. The French privateer Duc de Chartres captured her on 30 November 1780.[3] Her subsequent fate is unknown.[4]
