HMS Berbice (1780) was an American schooner of 121 tons (bm) that the Royal Navy purchased in 1780 and condemned on 12 September 1788. This may have become the next Berbice (1793) which was of 10 guns and 121 tons (bm) and purchased in 1793. She was wrecked in November 1796 on the coast of Dominica. This may have been the previous Berbice, and/or a French schooner captured in 1793.
