HMAS Success (II), the longest serving ship in Navy’s Fleet, has completed her service to the nation and was decommissioned at her homeport at Sydney’s Garden Island on Saturday, 29 June 2019. Success - dubbed the ‘Battle Tanker’ - has been a vital part of Navy’s capability over the past 33 years. The 157 metre-long Durance Class Replenishment Oiler was the last major vessel built at Cockatoo Island in Sydney and was the biggest ship in Navy’s Fleet at the time she was commissioned in 1986. Over more than three decades she sailed more than a million nautical miles and completed almost 3500 replenishments at sea around the world.
