German submarine U-795 was a Type XVIIA U-boat of Nazi Germany's Kriegsmarine during World War II.
U-795 was laid down on 2 February 1943 at the Friedrich Krupp Germaniawerft shipyard at Kiel. Commissioned on 21 March 1944, the U-boat was commissioned on 22 April 1944 under the command of Oberleutnant zur See Horst Selle. She served with 8th U-boat Flotilla until 15 February as a training boat, and then with 5th U-boat Flotilla until 3 May 1945.
On 3 May 1945, while in dry dock at Kiel, the engine room was destroyed with explosives to prevent its usefulness to the enemy if captured.
