Transferred to the RCN: 05 Aug 1944

Removed from service: 08 Mar 1945

Fate: As of 11 Jun 2013, she was being used as a houseboat in Southampton, England.


While she flew the White Ensign, she was not commissioned in the RCN but instead was listed as a tender to HMCS Stadacona (tenders were not commissioned vessels). MTB 486 was removed from service on 08 Mar 1945 and sold sometime thereafter. As of Dec 2012, there is a fundraising campaign underway by Canadian Coastal Forces Trust to raise money to purchase and restore MTB 486 back to operational condition.
