Turbinia

fast boat


Turbinia was the world's first ship powered by steam turbines. For many years, she remained the easily fastest ship in the world, capable of reaching 34.5 knots!  Turbinia set the standard for the next generation of steamships.  Starting from 1905, all future Royal Navy vessels were to be turbine-powered.   The first one: the famous HMS Dreadnought.

Ross Winans

Cigar boat


The Ross Winans was a "cigar boat" built by the Winans family, successful railroad engineers from Baltimore. In the early 1850’s, they conceived the ideal that the most advantageous shape for an ocean-traveling ship would be a spindle.  The waves would wash easily over the decks, reducing rolling; the pointed hull would cut through the water with minimal resistance.

Bushnell's Turtle

(1775)

 


David Bushnell’s Turtle, the first American submarine. Built in 1775, its intended purpose was to break the British naval blockade of New York harbor during the American Revolution. With slight positive buoyancy, Turtle normally floated with approximately six inches of exposed surface. Turtle was powered by a hand-driven propeller. The operator would submerge under the target, and using a screw projecting from the top of Turtle, he would attach a clock-detonated explosive charge. This 1875 drawing by Lt. Francis Barber is the most familiar rendering of Turtle. However, it contains several errors, including internal ballast tanks and helical screw propellers.

Hydrofoil


A hydrofoil is a foil which operates in water. They are similar in appearance and purpose to airfoils.  The term "hydrofoil" is commonly used for the wing-like structure mounted on struts below the hull of a variety of boats, which lifts the boat out of the water during forward motion, in order to reduce hull drag.

Ferrari Hydroplane

On the morning of October 15, 1953, Achille Castoldi succeeded in smashing the 800kg class speed record with an average “flying kilometer” two-way speed of 150.49 mph.  He followed up the performance later that day by setting another record in the “24 nautical miles” event.

Livadia


 


The steam yacht Livadia was constructed for Emperor Alexander II of Russia. Plans for the vessel had been prepared by Admiral Popoff, of the Russian navy, and were said to represent the latest development of ideas that were "revolutionary and subversive of all established principles of shipbuilding". The hull was the shape of a broad and shallow oval. It was claimed that taking a flat fish as a model for the vessel would satisfy the exceptional design requirements, in combining speed and strength with spacious comfort and stability. It seems that the Emperor was prone to severe seasickness. The Livadia was 153 feet broad at its widest point, more than three fifths of the 235 feet length. It was capable of 14 knots per hour. A crew of 260 was required to sail her. The Emperor's apartments were sumptuously fitted out with "splendid decorative work."

Q Boat

 


The opening sequence for the James Bond film 'The world is not enough' featured a water jet powered speed boat. In reality there were 15 boats, 4 of which were fully operational and the other 11 were full size models. The working bond boats were powered by a 5.7 litre V8 running through a jet drive - like a jet ski - this enables the bond boat to run in as little as three inches of water. These powerful little boats were capable of reaching 65mph, perhaps more impressive though are their 0-50 times of just 3.5 seconds.  Today only eight Q boat survive.  Please email us to inquire about
