H.M. T.B. 59 (1885)
Builder: Thornycroft[1]
Launched: 1885[2]
Sold: 1919[3]
H.M. T.B. 59 was one of 53 first-class torpedo boats of the 125 Footer class.

Around 1906-1907, with the issuance of torpedo boat numbers to the first of the Cricket class torpedo boats, the existing Torpedo Boats numbered 25 to 79 had a "0" prepended to their number. This vessel, therefore, became T.B. 059.[4]

Service

In 1895, she was one of twenty-three T.B.s of at least 125 feet in length stationed in Portsmouth along with four smaller T.B.s.[5]
