The Russian destroyer-destroyer Boyarin (length 345 feet at the water line, beam 41 feet, draught 16 feet; displacement 3,200 tons) built by Burmeister and Wain, for the Russian Government, was launched at Copenhagen in June 1901. The Boyarin was almost identical to the Novik (length 360 feet 5 inches at the water line, beam 40 feet; draught 16 feet 5 inches), but was fitted with sixteen Bellevile boilers whilst the Novik had been fitted with Thornycroft boilers of the same type usually fitted in destroyers.
