Mount Everest was a diesel motor trawler built in 1955 by John Lewis for the John Lewis fishing company. Everest was one of many fishing boats built by John Lewis for its own fishing company. They had a dark blue hull, blue deck houses and funnel and John Lewis flag on the funnel. Mount Eden was similar but built in 1957 and 4 feet longer than Everest. One crew member lost overboard 1959.

John Lewis fishing was bought over by British United Trawlers (BUT) in 1972. Everest sailed under the BUT company until 1981 it is owned by Crusader Fishing Company, Aberdeen. In Lloyds Register 1981-82 it is noted to be broken up/ scrapped.
