The Royal Marines currently operate ten Landing Craft Utility and sixteen Landing Craft Vehicle and Personnel (LCVP). On current plans, four LCVPs will be retired from service in 2018, when their parent ship (HMS OCEAN) is decommissioned. The Naval Service will continue to be able to deliver all planned amphibious tasking.
