ACACIA was one of six boats built by Yarwoods in coppered steel, which was unusual material for that period. She was commissioned by Fellows, Morton & Clayton Ltd and worked the northern half of the Shropshire Union Canal. In 1948, ACACIA became a maintenance craft for British Waterways and remained in that role until purchased by a private owner. She was re-built by G. Edgson of Norton Canes Boatbuilders in 1991 and given a new superstructure and steel hull.
