CORONIA was built as BRIT by Fellows & Co., Great Yarmouth, in 1935 for Longfield Brothers

In 1950, she was modified with a lower funnel and bridge to be operated on the Thames by Thames Launches for excursion work during the Festival of Britain.

On 29 May 1940, she was deployed to assist in the Dunkirk evacuation and reportedly rescued 900 troops.
