The Tempest was the first ship of the Anchor Line belonging to Scottish brothers Nicol and Robert Handyside and Captain Thomas Henderson. The 214-foot, 866-ton ship was built as a sail-ship by Sandeman & McLaurin of Glasgowmarker and launched on 21st December 1854. On April 3, 1855 Henderson began a maiden voyage from Glasgow to Bombay.

The Anchor Line decided to begin transatlantic service between Glasgowmarker and New Yorkmarker with Tempest. She was converted to a screw steamship with the fitting, by Randolf and Elder, of 150-horsepower engines in 1856. Her first passage left Glasgow on October 11, 1856; sailing from New York on November 19, she returned to Glasgow after a 28-day crossing.

Her second journey departed Glasgow December 27, mastered by Capt James Morris, with cargo and 50 passengers. She arrived in New York on February 1. She sailed eastward on February 13 1857 with crew, cargo and one passenger aboard. She vanished without a trace.

Two other ships of the Anchor Line disappeared at sea; the United Kingdom in 1869 and the Ismailia in 1873.
