SM U-110 was a Type U 93 u-boat of the German Imperial Navy (German language: Kaiserliche Marine) during World War I. She was ordered on 5 May 1916 and launched on 28 July 1917. She was commissioned into the German Imperial Navy on 25 September 1917 as SM U-110.[Note 1] and assigned to IV Flotilla of the High Seas Fleet based on the German North Sea coast.
U-110 made three wartime patrols, and sank 10 ships, totalling 26,963 GRT. Her first success was the British Q ship Penshurst, with which she fought an engagement on 24 December 1917. Penshurst sank shortly after.
U 110 was sunk on 15 March 1918 north-west of Malin Head. She was found and depth-charged by British destroyers Michael and Moresby. 39 men were lost. Coordinates:
In September, 1918 she was raised and taken to Swan Hunter's dry dock for restoration. At the conclusion of hostilities restoration was halted and she was sold for scrap.
- "SM" stands for "Seiner Majestät" (English: His Majesty's) and U for Unterseeboot. This translates as His Majesty's Submarine.
