MARY JANE was built in 1926 as an Admiralty Pinnace and is a vessel of teak double diagonal construction. In 1936 she was converted to a motor yacht by Joe White of Fulham. Uffa Fox wrote of her two years later: "A yacht where the owner's wife shares the joys of cruising has a restfulness and peace which is lacking in vessels used entirely by men, so that one constantly expects to see a cat curled up by an inviting fire. Mary Jane is one of the cosiest yachts I've ever slept aboard".
During the Second World War she took part in the Dunkirk evacuations and in 2010 took part in the 70th anniversary of Operation Dynamo.and more recently took part in the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Pageant.
The vessel is now used as a houseboat.
