358 was one of eighty-five 41.5 foot seaplane tenders built by British Powerboats at Hythe in 1941. Her wooden hull has a hard chine and, originally, she would have had two Perkins S6M engines linked to twin propellers. 358 was on loan for a considerable period to the National Motorboat Museum at Basildon.
