Monarch was built in Southend as a shallow draught beach boat and licenced to carry 73 passengers under sail. She was equipped with a 12ft long drop keel and Gaff rig.

During the 1930's two petrol/paraffin engines were fitted to enable her to work on the calmest of days. She would have been in this condition in May 1940.
