The register lists that the ship had several name changes but the years these took place, nor the owners, is not printed. Lloyd's 1947 register lists names as NAJADE; QUEEN MARY (again); URANIA (yacht); CIUDAD DE PALMA and CIUDAD DE ALCUDIA .

The last trace of this vessel is in the Lloyd's 1959 edition.The original steam plant is also listed in this edition. The owners are listed as Cia Tras Mediterranea, Palma, Majorca. It also mentions that this is a converted yacht and the owners own several other ships. Current duties of ship unknown.
