HMS Scott has been designed to commercial standards and will provide the Royal Navy with a deep bathymetric capability off the continental shelf.

The ship is fitted with a modern multi-beam sonar suite which will permit mapping of the ocean floor worldwide. The ship is fully lean-manned with a complement of only 63, made possible by moving toward commercial manning practices like the use of fixed fire fighting equipment and extensive machinery and safety surveillance technology. The ship has a three watch crew rotation system with 42 personnel embarked at any one time, enabling the ship to operate abroad for extended periods.

HMS Scott was constructed by Appledore Shipbuilders Ltd. in North Devon and launched by Mrs. Portillo on 13 October 1996.
