Project history


Very different from the Novik in appearance, the Boyarin resembled a lighter version of the Bogatyr' class with a short forecastle and poop, three funnels and two masts. One 120mm gun was mounted far forward, one aft and the others in upper deck sponsons by the fore and mainmasts.

Ship protection


There was a 38mm deck with 51mm slopes amidships and 76mm on the CT.

Modernizations


None.

Naval service


Boyarin struck a Russian mine 11.2.1904 off Dairen near Port Arthur and was abandoned by her crew. Towing appeared possible, but the Boyarin broke loose during the night and drifted on to another mine and sank two days later.
