Model description:
"59' loa steam-powered, steel-hulled torpedo boat of 1878 for the British Navy. Also two 1879 for the Peruvian Navies --- each of these hulls shipped in four sections." (Source: Bray, Maynard. 2004.)

"#60p was added by CvdL to the list of vessels built from this model because #53p and #55p, which also were built from this model, had identical dimensions, the same type of propulsion and the same customer." (Source: van der Linde, Claas. 2008.)
