Beatrice Maud was built in 1910 by Whites at Sittingbourne in Kent as a speculation and it was some time before she was bought by Kent Coasters Ltd. for 4,000 guineas (?4,200). Kent Coasters was a consortium of traders from the Sittingbourne area who traded quite successfully for some time, but as trade fell away after the First World War she was laid up for lack of freights. Then Kent Coasters ceased trading and Beatrice Maud was put up for sale. Alfred Sully bought her in the early 1930?s for ?400.
