Navy selects Everett
as homeport for next-gen ship fleet
EVERETT — Naval Station Everett was designated the Navy’s future homeport for the initial ships of the next generation of guided missile frigates, a new and improved class of small surface combatant ships, it was announced last week.
Everett will be home to 12 future Constellation-class Frigates; the first is scheduled to be delivered in 2026. The Constellation-class replaces the Oliver Hazard Perry-class frigates the Navy has decommissioned. The last Everett-homeported frigate, USS Rodney M. Davis, was decommissioned in 2015.
Naval Station Everett today is home to five Navy destroyers, two Coast Guard ships.
