MARY was built in 1928 for Associated Canal Carriers, but was later transferred to the Grand Union Canal Carrying Company. She went into service as the butty to GEORGE in 1929, both vessels having been constructed together as a prototype 'pair' for the royalty class barrow boat fleet. They were designed to carry above average pay loads and were long sided to make them safer when operating in the docks and the Thames tideways. MARY subsequently worked as a maintenance vessel and was sold by British Waterways in the 1960s. Her current owner purchased her in September 1986. MARY has cruised extensively throughout English and Welsh waterways, both towed by GEORGE and on her own.
