Flotilla of 37 foot six inch tenders built for Imperial Airways. Hubert Scott-Paine's British Powerboat Company supplied the airline with all the marine craft, passenger tenders, re-fuelling dinghies and maintenance boats required to operate the Empire Route flying boat services which started from Southampton in 1937.

Not surprising that Scott-Paine's company was involved. He'd been a director if Imperial Airways!
