Queensland Maritime Museum. 20 September 2011.

Built by Alexander Stephen & Sons Ltd of Govan, Glasgow, Scotland for the predecessors of Queensland Tug Company Pty Ltd, Forceful was launched in November, 1925. She departed Glasgow on 21 December, 1925 and arrived in Brisbane on 7 March, 1926.

In Brisbane, Forceful was employed mainly in the Brisbane River. Forceful became the last coal-burning tug on the river in January, 1964. With the more efficient diesel engined tugs, Forceful's work gradually decreased, with frequent periods when she was idle. On 28 September, 1970 she was retired from service.
