The Falcarian Navy is the naval branch of the Falcarian Defence Force. It is the official successor of the Turtonian Navy and is based out of the Port of Svoboda. Originally intended soley for ceremonial purposes; The Falcarian Navy has since obtained seaworthy vessels and have become an active component in other peacetime tasks such as carriers for the Royal Falcarian Postal Service. The Falcarian navy does not have jurisdiction surrounding the rottnest, as the Defence Force of Rottnest is constitutionally the Royal Australian Navy.

After the dissolution of Turto the roles of the navy were dissolved until 2016 with the formation of the Falcarian Defence Force. In 2017 after the acquisition of Arbonia the navy gained a testing site for naval vessels.
