Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The turbine yacht TS Vanadis was designed by Clinton Crane of Tams, Lemoine & Crane in New York, built at A. & J. Inglis, Pointhouse, Glasgow and launched in 1908. She was ordered by Mr. C.K.G. Billings of New York. She was built of steel, rigged as a triple screw schooner and, unusually, was powered by steam turbines. Capable of 16½ knots at full speed, she was registered at 1,092 tons gross and measured 249½ feet in length with a 32½ foot beam. She was sold in 1916 to Mr. M.F. Plant. She was then used by the Russian Navy under the name of Poryvs from 1917-1919. Sold to Baron de Linder and renamed Finlandia. In 1925 she was bought by Lt. Cmdr. Montague Grahame-White for his charter business and renamed to Ianara. Sold for the last time in 1935, she was reportedly broken up in 1938.
