H.M. T.B. 83 was one of six first-class torpedo boats of the T.B. 82 class.

Service

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

She was commissioned on 8 July 1896 in order to participate in the Annual Manoeuvres of 1896, but I have been unable to find who was her captain.[6][7][8]

One source indicates that she was sold to Brand on 12 October, 1919,[9] but according the the Navy List in January, 1921, she was at the Nore under a C. & M. party, temporarily working with the Nore Local Defence Flotilla.[10]
