Thames spritsail barge built of iron by Forrestt & Son Ltd at Wivenhoe, Essex in 1898, one of only three barges to be built there she holds the record of having traded for longer than any other British ship.
In 1923 she was converted to a fully powered motor ship.
After the second World War the barge was rebuilt at Faversham in steel and traded until 1982 until she was re-rigged as a sailing barge.
During 1999 she was used to film a sequence in the James Bond movie “The World is Not Enough” which unfortunately included her appearing to be blown up!
