'Turbinia' under way

The yacht 'Turbinia' was the first vessel in the world to be powered by steam-turbine engines. It was designed by Charles Parsons (1854-1931), who was the first person to see the turbine engine's potential for maritime propulsion. The 103-ft (31.4m) yacht was built for him by Brown and Hood of Wallsend in 1894 and reached hitherto unobtainable speeds of over 34 knots.
