  • HMS Wager (1744) was a 24-gun sixth rate launched in 1744 and sold in 1763.
  • HMS Wager was to have been a modified W-class destroyer. She was laid down in 1918 but was cancelled later that year.
  • HMS Wager (R98) was a W-class destroyer launched in 1943. She was sold to the Yugoslav Navy in 1956 and renamed Pula, and was withdrawn from service in 1971.
