A number of ships have been named ''Hindostan'' or ''Hindustan'', after the old name for the Indian subcontinent:
* was a P&O side paddle-wheel steamer that sank in a cyclone in Calcutta in 1864 while employed as a storeship.
* was built for British & Eastern Shipping Co., which sold her in 1873 to the New Zealand Shipping Co. That company renamed her the ''Waitara''. She sank in 1883 following a collision with ''Hurunui'' in the English Channel, with a loss of 20 lives.
* was a P&O steamer that was wrecked on a reef near Madras in 1879.
