- 1935 - 1941 PLATO
- 1941 - 1948 ANNIE ELIZA
- 1948 PRINCESS ANNE
PRINCESS ANNE was built by Harland and Wolfe at Woolwich in 1935 as a Star Class Little Woolwich narrow boat. She was originally known as PLATO and was employed working for the Grand Union Canal Carrying Company (GUCCC). She was sold to Proberts in 1941, and was sold again to T&S Elements of Birmingham, for use as a full length tug on the Birmingham Canal Navigations (BCN). She continued in this role until about 1968, when she was sold into private ownership. She was then shortened and converted into a live aboard, although she was subsequently returned to her carrying trim, but with a reduced length of 57 feet 6 inches.
