JANET was built as Admiralty Barge No. 236, associated first with HMS EDGAR; then in 1893 with HMS CRESCENT; in 1897 with HMS ROYAL ARTHUR; and finally with HMS POWERFUL. She was de-commissioned in 1912 and sold and converted to a motor yacht on the River Shannon. She was acquired by her present owners late in 1988, brought back to Gosport and was first re-steamed in August 1992. She was bought by her current owner in 2002, and is now based in Windermere.
