Hurley was built by Salter's as a private yacht named the Caucase for a Russian count in 1914. A fire broke out in Salter’s slipway building on Monday 24 May 1920 and the Caucase, which was being refitted, was virtually destroyed. Only her hull survived, which Salter’s put to use when in 1924 a vessel named Phoenix joined their passenger fleet, having risen – as a phoenix does – from the ashes of the Caucase. She was smaller than Salter's usual boats – 66' in overall length, 11' in beam – and her funnel and machinery were placed aft of the saloon. Phoenix was renamed Hurley in 1927 but in February 1931 followed Gaiety (ex-Oxford) to the River Avon at Evesham where for many years she sailed for S J Grove. She returned to the Thames in 1981 and currently (2011) runs for Parr Boat Hire at Kingston-on-Thames.
