The Great Western Railway introduced three new steamers on the Weymouth to the Channel Islands service in 1889. The great acceleration of the service and the improved accommodation in the new steamers were quickly appreciated by the public, and the traffic grew to such an extent that the company ordered a fourth vessel in 1891. TSS Ibex was launched on 6 June 1891 by Mrs Laird.
Less than three years later, on 5 January 1900, she struck a reef at St Peter Port, Guernsey, and sank within 10 minutes. One passenger and one crewman died. She settled on a rock in eight fathoms of water. The board of enquiry found that the master was alone in default, and suspended him for 6 months. She was raised on 21 July 1900 and returned to service the following April after repairs.
